The all-rounder Glenn Maxwell is not sure if he will go on a trip to Pakistan in Australia from March to April because he and his fiancee plan to hold their long-delayed wedding at that time.
Maxwell and pharmacist Vini Raman got engaged in March 2020, but due to COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions, they had to reschedule the wedding many times.
The 33-year-old player will be Australia’s first candidate for a limited match against Pakistan between March 29 and April 5, after a three-match test series in South Asian countries.
“I think we had a great trip back there. I think the last time I went there was in 1998,” he told reporters on Tuesday.
“Whether I go there may depend on my fiancée, because my wedding should be held at that time. So I may not be the right person to ask this question.”
When asked if his fiancée would consider moving again, Maxwell said: “There is no chance. We have moved several times, so I think that’s it.”
On Thursday, Australia will meet Pakistan in the semi-finals of the 2021 T20 World Cup in Dubai as it is vying for the first title in the global championship.
Although he has been in his best form during the Indian Premier League (IPL), Maxwell did not hit the destructive game with the bat in the World Cup as the Australian fans wanted.
However, he has been eager for opportunities in the past two games and has remained undefeated against Bangladesh and the West Indies without scoring goals.
“I’m not sure if you noticed it, but I have two back-to-back outs, which is very rare in my career,” he said with a smile.
“This means that if I don’t spend so much time there, the highest order will go very smoothly. I have been in a very good headspace so I hope (I) don’t need or hope that another zero will go out and stay on the other end. ,” he added.
