Australian batsman Glenn Maxwell has been in an amazing form recently. He scored three half-centuries in ongoing Australia vs Pakistan ODI series in UAE.
Australia is leading the five-match ODI series 4-0 and coach Justin Langer claims that Glenn Maxwell can be like Virat Kohli. This bold claim came after seeing his recent performance just ahead of the ICC world cup.
“The challenge for him is, and I’ve said this to him, we’ve just seen Virat Kohli, who is an extraordinarily talented player – he averages 60 in ODI cricket. He is a great player. At the moment, in 99 games, Maxi averages 32 or 33. He can be Virat Kohli. He has got the talent to do that. The way he played that T20 hundred in India, the way he played both T20s – we know he’s a great T20 player. His next challenge is to become a great ODI player and then potentially a Test player.”
Do you guys agree with Justin Langer?
