I think it's all done and dusted now about Wade comments: Maxwell

By Rashmi Nanda -

Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell said that there is no issue between himself and any senior members of the Victorian cricket for his public comments about Matthew Wade. 

After questioning Wade's decision of batting before Maxwell in the batting table for the Bushrangers earlier this month Maxwell was fined an unrevealed amount by his Australian ODI teammates.

After his inappropriate comments, the 28-year-old said that there is no unhealthy feeling between himself and his skipper, nor has Coach Andrew McDonald. 

Maxwell told cricket.com.au, "I think it's all done and dusted now. I think we'll move on from there. I've seen Ronnie (McDonald) a few times and he's fine. I've seen (Cricket Victoria CEO) Tony Dodemaide and (general manager) Shaun Graf and they're all fine. Move on." 

Maxwell also said that he has been pleased by the progress of his teammate Peter Handscomb, who smashed his maiden Test century in his just second Test match last week. Maxwell said on this, "He is an absolute legend and one of my closest mates. We've come through the ranks together and played Shield cricket together for six years now and to see him do as well as he is just brings a massive smile to my face.”

He added, "I get a little bit giggly when I see him walk out on the field and he's got that stupid grin on his face, facing the bowlers and charging the spinners. I just couldn't be happier for him. Watching him make runs and that hundred, I got butterflies. It was outstanding." 

Despite not playing in the International cricket for some time, the Aussie all-rounder said that he is in good form and was impressive in his practice matches for the Stars and also for Melbourne club side Fitzroy-Doncaster.

Maxwell said that he is ready to battle with the Hurricanes, as recently he has scored 72 and 79 runs as well as picked up four wickets for the Lions in their recent two-day clash.

He stated, "I'm hitting them really well. It felt really good just to get out to the middle (for Fitzroy-Doncaster) and hit the ball cleanly and I had a similar hit out (for the Stars) against the Renegades on Monday. I just felt really calm about my technique and clear about where I want to hit the ball. So I'm feeling really positive heading into the Big Bash."
