  • But with the Test series against Pakistan in October at the front of his mind, Maxwell is taking the time to look after his body and make sure he’s ready should selectors call his name.
  • “I’ve been doing a fair bit of work on that (shoulder) behind closed doors,” Maxwell said yesterday after completing the mud run at the naval base.
