Australian cricket superstar Glenn Maxwell recently opened up about his cricketing journey, family life, and unique approach to the upcoming Big Bash League season.

In a discussion about his training routine, Maxwell nonchalantly addresses the challenges with training.

“It’s training, old enough to sort of know how much it sort of takes me to get ready for a game of cricket,” Maxwell said.

“So it won’t take too much,” he said, emphasising his adaptability to unforeseen circumstances.

Maxwell’s revelation about his training philosophy sheds light on his evolved approach to the game, easing the pressure it has on his body.

“I didn’t train much…it was more getting the pressure of the games, training has probably taken a little bit of a backseat to make sure my body’s in a good space and I’m mentally fresh as well.”

The physical toll of cricket is not lost on Maxwell, who candidly admitted, “I’m still old, don’t get younger. It’s in a stable state where I’m gonna have to manage it for the rest of my career.”

Despite the challenges, he’s committed to putting in effort, saying, “I’m always gonna be working as hard as I possibly can to get fit for every tournament.”

Maxwell has benefitted from this new approach to the upcoming BBL season, especially after the One Day World Cup.

With specific responsibilities as a veteran player, Maxwell credited his family for a more evident mindset on the field.

“I’ve been able to just concentrate on that and not have to worry about too much else,” he explained.

“Family does change things and it does change your values and your thoughts as well.”

Glenn Maxwell and the Melbourne Stars kick off their BBL|13 campaign against the Brisbane Heat at The Gabba on December 7, 7:15 PM AEDT.
