IND vs AUS – Watch: Glenn Maxwell Practices Batting Left-Handed Ahead Of 1st T20I vs India

India and Australia are all set for the upcoming three-match T20I series, which kicks off in Mohali on September 20. With the Indian side including skipper Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah, the Australian team also has some superstars in their ranks such as Glenn Maxwell, Tim David, Pat Cummins and Steve Smith. Aaron Finch’s team is all set to put up a tough fight for the hosts ahead of the upcoming T20 World Cup. On Monday, both teams took to the training ground and what caught everyone’s attention was all-rounder Glenn Maxwell, who played left-handed shots.

It’s important to note that Maxwell is one of the best players of the ‘switch hit’, and hitting left handed can be seen as a way to further perfect this particular shot. He will probably use this spot against the Indian spinners – Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravichandran Ashwin and Axar Patel.

A video posted to the Punjab Cricket Association’s Twitter showed right-handed Maxwell hitting big shots with his left hand during the practice session.

After the T20I series of three games against Australia, Team India will face South Africa from September 28 for three T20Is and three ODIs. Their next assignment in the shortest form is straight forward to the 2022 T20 World Cup, which starts in Australia in October. .


India squad: Rohit Sharma (c), KL Rahul (vc), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Rishabh Pant, Dinesh Karthik, Hardik Pandya, Ravichandaran Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Deepak Chahar , Jasprit Bumrah, Umesh Yadav.
