Maxwell is focused on his shocking red-ball comeback for the World Test Championship series.

Limited-overs specialist Glenn Maxwell is still hopeful about returning to Test cricket and sees his greatest chance to do so coming from an away series on the subcontinent towards the conclusion of the current ICC World Test Championship cycle.

Only seven Test matches have Maxwell played for his nation; all of those red-ball matches have taken place outside of Australia, and he hasn’t played for his country since more than six years ago.

Maxwell was a key player in Australia’s 2021 victory in Dubai at the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, and he was again a highlight in the team’s most recent victorious ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup run in India.

Even though Maxwell is aware that the limited-overs format of the game is more his style, the 35-year-old still believes he can contribute at the Test level and intends to keep pushing for a spot before Australia’s last series of the current World Test Championship cycle.

Maxwell hopes to play in Australia’s upcoming Warne-Muralitharan Trophy series in Sri Lanka in the beginning of 2025. This series is expected to be very important as it builds towards the World Test Championship final that year.

I have a good knowledge of the present situation. On Tuesday, Maxwell stated on Australian radio station SEN, “They’re playing some really good cricket, they’re World Test champions.”

“As far as domestic tests go, there aren’t many openings, but I am certain that if a subcontinent trip is called upon, I can be a very strong contender to maybe play a part on that side.

“I don’t anticipate doing another trip of a subcontinent until early in 2025. I’ll thus continue to work hard and maybe have a chance at that point.”
