Maxwell, who is known to go berserk at the business end of the innings, came into the middle in the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/india-vs-australia-1st-odi-jhye-richardsons-4-26-helps-australia-beat-india-by-34-runs-790265">opening one-dayer against India</a> at the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/sydney-cricket-ground">Sydney Cricket Ground</a> (SCG) at No. 7 in the 48<sup>th</sup> over. He could play only five deliveries and scored 11 runs. <p></p> <p></p> It feels to me that he s slightly wasted in that position. Hopefully, going forward he can be used as not a pinch-hitter but, depending on the circumstances of the game, you could throw him in at No.3 if you had a good start for example, Border, while criticising the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/aaron-finch/">Aaron Finch</a>-led brigade, told <em>Fox Sports</em>.

That would let him play with a bit of freedom, he said. <p></p> <p></p>Meanwhile, Border threw his weight behind the ignored Maxwell in the Test arena. I think he s a good enough player to be playing Test cricket, but I think the ball is in his court as far as putting numbers on the board to make him irresistible, Border said.

I don t know about this batting order. I d really like to see Glenn Maxwell in. He s still sitting in the shed, Waugh said. <p></p> <p></p>The second ODI will be held on Tuesday at the Adelaide Oval.
