Holding IPL in UAE Will Level Playing Field for T20 World Cup: Glenn Maxwell

Holding IPL in UAE Will Level Playing Field for T20 World Cup: Glenn Maxwell

An all-rounder from Australia, Maxwell thinks that playing in the IPL prior to the T20 World Cup will give Australian batsmen adequate time to understand the ground conditions in the UAE. The team is a part of a challenging group of 12 Super Stage accompanied by the West Indies, who is a defending champion, as well as South Africa and England. The latter teams hold the leading positions in the chart.

He said that the fact that there were many Australian players in the IPL was a great way to prepare for the T20 World Cup. Maxwell added that the practice would be great for the batsmen and bowlers who could prepare themselves fully before the tournament commences. He confirmed that Australian players were eager to play on the field and get to know it more.

There are many international players in the IPL who are also a part of the World Cup. They will also get a chance to level the playing field. With regards to the Australian squad for the tournament, Maxwell thinks that it is a strong team that has come together. He adds that the key for the team to win the World Cup T20 is to get a smooth start. It will fire up the players and get the batters started in a good form. It will also get a few bowlers to take early wickets.

When enquired about the squad of Australia, Maxwell said that in the tournament, there weren’t any weak teams, and Australians were well off the same. There were times when the team beat everyone. Now, both the groups are strong, so every match is going to be equally challenging. So the team will be focusing on what they can do best, and hopefully, that will be enough for them.
