Cricket legends slam Australia's use of Maxwell


//

Australia has been slammed by several cricket legends for the misuse of Glenn Maxwell in the first one-day international.

The home side recovered from losing its opening pair inside the first 10 overs to post a competitive total of 288, but Fox Cricket's Shane Warne was left unimpressed by Maxwell's batting position.

"Maxwell should face more than five balls in a one-day international, he's so dangerous," he said.

"He's one of the most dangerous cricketers in the world."

Glenn Maxwell

Maxwell, renowned for his ferocious striking ability, did not arrive at the crease until the 48th over, and faced just five deliveries in the innings, scoring 11 runs.

The Victorian all-rounder combined with Marcus Stoinis for a quick-fire 34-run partnership in the final 16 deliveries of the innings.

Australia's use of Maxwell, or lack-thereof, was also criticised by former England captain Michael Vaughan.

"He has got the game to be able to strike it well over 100, plays spin nicely," he said.

"He's a class player, he really is. He's got a gift to be able to play the game."

Peter Handscomb

Former Australian captain Allan Border suggested that the explosive all-rounder should have been sent in following the wicket of Shaun Marsh in the 38th over.

"You have to see that it's an opportunity missed by Australia to get Maxwell in," he said.

"It'll be the area that changed the score from around 270-280 to that 300+ score.

"A little bit disappointing with wickets in hand that could've pushed the score past 300."

Despite the lack of Maxwell in Australia's innings, Peter Handscomb was impressive, top-scoring for the home side with a 61-ball 73, while Stoinis finished the innings unbeaten on 47 off 43 deliveries.
