An extraordinary all-rounder with 111 matches first-class matches experience who scored more than 6000 runs and picked up nearly 300 wickets hasn’t had enough luck to feature in India A squad which will travel to West Indies.

Glenn Maxwell was a hot topic of debate during India’s tour of Australia. Selectors didn’t prefer him for the Test squad irrespective of a decent performance in the Sheffield Shield matches.
