Star Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell is unwavered for his commitment towards cricket despite the tasking season including the World Cup and a rigorous five-match T20I series against India.

In a recent interaction, the explosive all-rounder expressed his enthusiasm for the Indian Premier League (IPL), asserting his desire to participate in the cash-rich league until he ‘can’t walk anymore’.

“The IPL will probably be the last tournament I ever play, as I will play the IPL until I can’t walk anymore,” said Maxwell during a recent interaction after having a week of well-deserved rest behind him.

“I was talking about how good the IPL has been to me throughout my career; the people I’ve met, the coaches I have played under, the international players that you get to rub shoulders with, how beneficial to my whole career that tournament has been,” the explosive all-rounder further said.

“You are rubbing shoulders with AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli for two months, talking to them while watching other games. It’s just the greatest learning experience that any player could ask for. Hopefully a lot of our Australian players can get over to the IPL and get to work in slightly similar conditions to the West Indies, where it is a little bit drier, it will spin,” he added.
