In a recent statement, Australian cricket all-rounder Glenn Maxwell expressed his unwavering commitment to participating in the Indian Premier League (IPL) until the twilight of his career, affirming that he plans to play in the world’s most prominent cricket league “until he can’t walk anymore.”

Maxwell, who played a pivotal role in Australia’s triumphant ODI World Cup campaign in India, is set to rejoin the Royal Challengers Bangalore for the upcoming IPL season.

During a conversation at Melbourne Airport, Maxwell shared his sentiments about the profound impact the IPL has had on his career, emphasizing the invaluable experiences gained through interactions with top-notch international players and esteemed coaches.

“Rubbing shoulders with AB and Virat for two months, talking to them while watching other games—it’s just the greatest learning experience that any player could ask for,” Maxwell stated.

The 35-year-old highlighted the significant role the IPL has played in shaping his cricketing journey, underscoring the exposure to diverse conditions and the opportunity to learn from some of the best in the sport.

Maxwell’s dedication to the IPL is not merely personal; he believes that Australian cricketers stand to benefit tremendously from participating in the league, especially with an eye on the upcoming T20I World Cup in the United States and the West Indies scheduled for June.

Maxwell encouraged his fellow Australian players to seize the opportunity to compete in the IPL, emphasizing the similarities between the IPL conditions and those expected in the West Indies.

“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 suggested.

As Maxwell prepares to lead the Melbourne Stars in the opening match of the Big Bash League against the Brisbane Heat, cricket enthusiasts eagerly anticipate his continued contributions on the field.
