Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell said on Friday that Australia’s upcoming four-Test tour of India would be a real test for every player.
Maxwell, who has played many Indian Premier League (IPL) franchises, said that they should improve their shot selection to tackle India’s spin attack.
When asked by cricket.com.au, Maxwell said “You`ve got to be adaptable, and you`ve got to be able to change your game almost mid-innings. So, it`s going to be a real test for everyone.”
“Even for the Indian players, you watch them; they go through different stages of their innings from sweeping, to using their feet, to playing off the back-foot, they change all the way through their innings.”
He added, “Hopefully, we can do similar stuff and work on our play of spin because it’s going to be pretty key.”

Australian, 28-years-old all-rounder, who recently in New Zealand playing One-day International squad for the Chappell-Hadlee series, point out that each player has to prepare multiple strategies to be successful in India.
Maxwell said “I`m not sure it`s a place you ever really feel comfortable. It`s a place where you`ve got to work so hard to get your runs, and you`ve got to have different strategies at different times of a game.”
