Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell could make his return to professional cricket as early as next week. With Australia set to play against India in a white-ball series in March, Maxwell is eager to make a comeback in the national setup.

The 34-year-old suffered a freak leg injury in November, which saw him fracturing his left fibula. As a result, he was out of the game for an indefinite period of time.

The Victorian was eyeing a potential Test comeback in the upcoming Border-Gavaskar series, but this leg injury derailed his dream, and the selectors had to look at some other options.

He was a part of the Australian squad for the India tour in 2017, and even scored a majestic century in the third Test of the series. But since then, his stocks have fallen considerably and the swashbuckling batter has failed to cement a regular place in the Test side.

Maxwell was gutted to miss out on the India Test tour.

“Probably will nag at me for the rest of my life,” he said to Fox Cricket  this week.

“It’s nice getting the opportunity to watch your teammates play, especially over there. I think they’ve got the squad that’s probably as good as I’ve seen go over to India since I’ve been watching Tests over there, anyway."

As per The Age, Maxwell has a chance to represent Victoria in a Sheffield Shield game against Queensland on February 9.
