Maxwell chalks out plans to tackle Indian spinners
Perth: SET to make his Test debut against India, dashing Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell has already chalked out his plans against spinners, and feels his brief experience of playing in Indian conditions will hold him in good stead in the upcoming four-Test series. Maxwell was named as the main spinning all-rounder in Australia's 17-member Test squad to tour India. "I've thought about how I'm going to be playing spinners over there," said Maxwell, who visited India in 2010 for a training camp as part of the Centre of Excellence side, and also enjoyed a short stint with Delhi Daredevils in 2012 IPL. "I've been lucky enough to play over there a little bit, I had the Academy a couple of years ago and had the IPL experience last year. I know my game plan over there is going to be pretty simple, using my feet against the spinners and hopefully that will hold me in good stead," he added.
