Stat all-rounder Glenn Maxwell feels that having a grat backing from players and support staffs apart from role clarity helped him a lot to do well last year in the IPL.
“I think just the calmness in the dressing room. Having other guys around me, I felt I had a clearer role, didn’t really change from game to game. To go out there and play the same role pretty much every time was really nice. There was an amazing belief in the change room. I felt I had great backing from players and staff alike. So, it was a really nice change,” said Maxwell in a pre-match chat with broadcasters Star Sports.
With Saturday’s match against Mumbai Indians, Maxwell will be marking his first appearance in IPL 2022 after missing initial matches due to his wedding to Indian-origin pharmacist Vini Raman. He felt that his marriage gave him time to prepare well for the tournament.
“Not really (on marriage affecting preparation). It’s actually helped me a little bit. Having a week or so to prepare before the start of the tournament. Otherwise, it would have been a little bit rushed had I come straight from the domestic summer. So, I haven’t played for a month but spent a bit of time in the nets, preparing with some drills to get started and had a nice bit of lead-in to the game as well.”
