Glenn Maxwell has been added to Australia Test squad to face Sri Lanka amid a growing injury list he last played a Test in September 2017


A big good news has come out for Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell. Maxwell has got a place in Australia’s Test team after a gap of 5 years, not one or two. Maxwell, who played his last Test match in September 2017, has been included in the squad for the upcoming Test series against Sri Lanka. Maxwell has got this opportunity because the injury list of the Australian team has become bigger on the Sri Lanka tour.

Glenn Maxwell, who is called the specialist of white ball cricket, has played only 7 Test matches for the Australian team. He may have made his debut in red ball cricket in 2013, but till 2017 he was able to participate in only 7 Test matches. He also scored a century during this period, but he did not prove to be that effective. Even at this time he has been included in the Test team on the basis of his performance in limited overs cricket.

The Australian team, which came on the tour of Sri Lanka, is constantly facing injuries. Half a dozen key players of the team are troubled by injuries, including players like Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, Mitchell Marsh, Travis Head, Sean Abbott and Ashton Agar. In such a situation, Cricket Australia has selected Glenn Maxwell in the Test team of Australia. However, whether they will be able to get it or not, it remains to be seen.
