The forthcoming three-match Twenty20 International series between Australia and India will begin on September 20 at Mohali. The Australian squad also features several superstars in its ranks, including Glenn Maxwell, Tim David, Pat Cummins, and Steve Smith, in addition to the Indian team’s captain Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Jasprit Bumrah.

In preparation for the forthcoming T20 World Cup, the Aaron Finch-led team is ready to put up a fight against the hosts. When both teams went to practise on Monday, it was the all-rounder Glenn Maxwell’s left-handed strokes that grabbed everyone’s attention.

Glenn Maxwell Getting Ready To Face Indian Spin Trio

The fact that Maxwell bats left-handed may be considered a chance for him to better improve this specific shot because he is one of the top players of the “switch-hit.” He will probably utilise this position when playing Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravichandran Ashwin, and Axar Patel, three Indian spinners.

The right-handed Maxwell was filmed during a practice session smashing booming smashes with his left hand, according to a Punjab Cricket Association video released on Twitter. 

After playing Australia in a three-match T20I series, Team India will play South Africa in three T20Is and three ODIs beginning on September 28. The T20 World Cup in 2022, which starts in Australia in October, will be their next task in the shortest format.
