Lucky to play alongside Sehwag, says Maxwell

Lucky to play alongside Sehwag, says Maxwell
Maxwell, who starred in his first season with Kings XI Punjab last year, is yet to fire this season. However, it doesn’t stop him from talking about his gains from the IPL. “Ups and downs are part of a cricketers’ career and hopefully I will hit my straps soon and there won’t be any problems,” Maxwell said when asked about his current form.

 Maxwell has made better use of his potential at a ‘more relaxed’ Kings XI Punjab, after parting ways with the star-studded Mumbai Indians last year.  Talking about the role IPL has played in his career, Maxwell says there is lots he has shared with the Indian domestic players besides learning a trick or two from legends like Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar, who used to be his teammate at Mumbai Indians. 

“You learn as you move along. The way they (Indians) play the conditions here. It has been a great experience to play with legends of the game such as Viru (Sehwag). I was lucky enough to play alongside Sachin previously. It is just a great competition to be a part of,” said Maxwell, who doesn’t have much to show in his two first two outings of IPL 8.

Are there any specifics that he and Sehwag discuss at nets? “Not really, but we have our regular chats about the game and the way we go about it. He always tells me about sticking to your game no matter what and back your instincts, and not worry about the external rubbish that goes on,” said the 26-year-old Victorian.
