In crisis Glenn Maxwell thrives
Less than a year after withdrawing from cricket to tackle mental health issues, master blaster Glenn
Maxwell has reached a higher plain in the one-day format while helping Australia turn the tables on world champions England.
Maxwell’s 108 in a brilliant 212-run partnership with Alex Carey drove Australia to a three-wicket win in Manchester on Wednesday and a 2-1 series victory. “Everything pretty much went to plan, the way our partnership built was outstanding,” said Maxwell. “I feel like I’ve always batted better for Australia when we’ve been in a bit of trouble.”
The tour of England was the Melbourne man’s first taste of international cricket since last year.
