Glenn Maxwell Wants To Prove He Has Temperament To Play Test Cricket

Glenn Maxwell Trevor Hohns

This time, he entered the spot-light frame even by not appearing in the scene.

Justin Langer has teed off at "careless whispers" about Australian cricket, tensely firing back at suggestions Glenn Maxwell has been mistreated or misadvised.

Australia National Selector Trevor Horns was impressed at Maxwell choosing to play for Australia over anything else and credited the all-rounder for the same.

Langer was appointed the new Australian coach in May, which was after Maxwell was reportedly told to abandon his country plans, so he may not be aware of every detail of the 30-year-old's situation.

Maxwell refrained from playing in County cricket last season in a bid to get selected for Australia A's tour of India past year.

However, it had come after Trevor Hohns, the chairman of selectors, clarified that he wasn't sure about any such instruction or from where had it come from. "He is another player with a track record of making centuries", said Hohns.

"Glenn is crystal clear from me and the selectors, what he needs to do to get back in the Test team. He is crystal clear" Langer was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.

During the media conference, Langer had addressed Maxwell's omission from the Test squad for Sri Lanka and the "false" reports about the right-hander's personality as a contributing factor to his selection chances, reinforcing the message Hohns delivered.

"It's important that he knows that and I know that as one of the selectors, and all the conjecture about that is all part of the noise".

Langer says he has no knowledge of Maxwell getting any board from the top bosses.

Glenn Maxwell can't find a way into the Test team, despite impressing at Shield level.

But he has only played eight first-class matches, and after that double ton took a break from cricket because of a mental health issue."Will Pucovski is an exciting young player who is making his mark in the Sheffield Shield". After not being picked for the series against Pakistan in UAE, Maxwell was asked to prove himself in the first-class cricket.

Justin Langer, who was sitting and listening to all such talks from the reporter, reacted fumingly.

"Are you certain that's what happened? Careless whispers, hey", he added before apologising.

"There's a big thought from my side that I'm not getting enough first class cricket in Australia and that's probably shown by this summer - I'm only going to play two Shield games for the whole season", Maxwell said.

Langer, appointed head coach in May, and Maxwell, keen to stay out of the headlines, both want to move on from the saga and focus on Saturday's ODI series opener against India.
