I’ve been one of his biggest critics but I do believe he should be atleast in the squad of the current ODI side. If there is even a hint of truth to some of the stories I’ve heard then it’s hardly surprising he isn’t playing though
Any chance you can elaborate on any of the stories?
No. Never said that.
Just clashes between him and other players and allegedly having a decent crack at Boof
Boot retires in 18 months so I guess we won’t see him before then? Hang on, Langer will probably be coach and he has s ‘no dickheads’ policy at the Warriors.
RIP The Big Show.
My thoughts are that White should be picked for T20 cricket - T20 cricket seems to suit the mature players more and White is in good form - And Australia is ordinary in T20 cricket.
By that token, Marsh Major should be relegated to T20…
Very few of the current Aussie line up gets on well with Maxwell. Boof really doesn’t like him. Boof was a larrikin but he was professional in how he went about cricket, he thinks Maxwell is a larrikin but is very unprofessional in how he goes about cricket.
that was some video game mode ■■■■ right there. couldn’t miss.
Maxy lives in the Essendon area (Aberfeldie I think), as does Finchy. The president of the club I play for knows both blokes well and sees them often at The Union in Ascot Vale for a few drinks. He said Maxy is a good bloke one-on-one to have a beer with, but for whatever reason he doesn’t fit in in a team environment. Finchy is an all-round good bloke, probably the reason why he’s been kept in the team despite probably having a worse season with the bat than Maxy. It’s how he responds from here being firstly omitted from the Test team, not called up when Handscomb was dropped, then not selected in the ODI squad and not drafted in once Lynn was injured. Hopefully he fights for his place and responds in the right way, but he could also decide to pack in International cricket and become a T20 gun for hire. Financially he’d do pretty well out of that…
Better than an Aussie contract.
I’m outrage I tell you, outraged.
They should have been doing the right thing by the sponsors by munching on some KFC and swigging on a VB longneck. So much healthier!
The same stories that get leaked about everyone who gets stiffed at selection - somewhere between 90 and 100% bullshit. You’re only ever trouble if you’re on the outer with selection.
Notice that you never heard about how abrasive M Clarke or mickey Arthur or Chappelli were; at least while they were in the side/setup.
You can believe them if you want.
A mate of mine was a Belgrave Sth junior, is still good mates with his brother, and keeps in touch with Maxie.
He really should try doing somehing like making piles of runs in Shield.
for more than one season
The rumours of a bit of a disengagement between Maxwell and Boof are around the mark but not sure about any words between them as we couldn’t get anything out of him apart from him saying that Maxwell’s efforts at training were not up standard and that he tries to get through on his great talent alone and needs to work harder
And I’ve heard the direct opposite (regarding his training) out of a past Bushrangers Shield coach and a past Bushrangers one day coach.
You can choose to believe as many of these rumours as you want.
According to the cricket rumour mill in about 2004 about 9 different players boofed Mrs Gilchrist. All BS. But somebody’s starting them.
What an absolutely moronic, goldfish, smartarse comment.
Do you not have any memory at all of who he was plying for, during the bulk of the 2016-17 summer? Tip, it starts and ends with with A.
Tip, he got that by playing well in shield in 15-16.
And did you see his scores during those times?
You’re the one speaking like “an absolutely moronic, goldfish, smartarse”.
