Glenn Maxwell, Australia’s top all-rounder, will not tour Pakistan and may miss the cash-rich Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 because he is getting married to his fiance Vini Raman in late March and will be away from sport.
When asked about his wedding preparations, Maxwell told that it was inevitable owing to continual schedule changes: “Originally, when I planned the dates with CA, there was a two-week gap where I could maybe have it.”

“So when I figured it out, I was relieved that I wouldn’t be missing from any of the episodes. And then I went to the Cricket Australia (CA) contract meeting in the middle of last year, and they said, “Well, this is when the Pakistan series is on,” and I thought, “Well, clearly, that’s changed since the last talk we had.” “Maxwell disclosed.
It should be noted that Australia will travel Pakistan for the first time in 24 years, playing three Tests, three ODIs, and a one-off T20I, and Maxwell is seen as an important component of Australia’s limited-overs squad.
Maxwell, who is now representing Australia in a five-match T20I series against Sri Lanka at home, has played in 116 ODIs and 82 T20Is for his country. He is also well-known in the IPL circuit for his ability to demonstrate power-hitting talents with the bat and great fielding abilities.
