Australian allrounder Glen Maxwell hopes for an early comeback to be a part of the upcoming T20 matches against New Zealand.
Glenn Maxwell is still recovering from the elbow surgery that he had undergone. In line with that, he remains positive that he will be a part of the team lineup for the upcoming T20Is against New Zealand.
The 31-year-old player complained of an elbow pain which grew more painful. After some tests, results showed that it would require surgery. Along with Maxwell’s elbow surgery, everyone knew that he would need about six to eight weeks to recover. Given that fact, Maxwell had been ruled out from the team’s South Africa tour.
His last international appearance on the field was on a T20I match against Sri Lanka in October 2019. After that, he still took part in the BBL where he had led the Melbourne Stars.
As it turns out, his recovery is faster than expected. According to cricket news sources, Maxwell had been coordinating with George Bailey to help him resume to his light batting drills. With him preparing for his inclusion in the upcoming T20Is against the Black Caps, the fans may be in for a surprise if he makes it back to the team earlier than expected.
The T20I matches between Australia and New Zealand will take place after the three ODIs are through. For now, the next match will take place at the Sydney Cricket Ground on March 13. The odds of the match are -172.41 for the Baggy Greens and +133 for the Black Caps. For more credible cricket betting odds, check out Betwala.
