Glenn Maxwell is raring to go in the fourth incarnation of the Big Bash League and believes his Melbourne Stars can put semi-final heartbreak last season behind them.“Massive Big Bash season ahead and really looking forward to getting out there with the Melbourne Stars again,” Maxwell enthused. “Obviously we had a bit of bad luck with the semi-final last year and hopefully this year we can go one further.”
And with this season’s BBL attracting stars from all over the globe and an expectation of crowds to beat last year’s record breaking attendances, Maxwell is pumped and ready.
“It’s obviously improved a lot since its first year and it’s just going to be getting bigger and better I think and it’s a great tournament to be involved in.
“The talent is getting better and better and I think Cricket Australia is doing really well to make sure the best 88 players are out there playing.”
