JL's recent comments show he's definitely warmed to Maxwell. He couldn't stand talking about him whenever his name came up a few months ago. I reckon apart from seeing him up close in some great knocks recently they've probably had a few conversations and bonded a bit.
So I reckon he'd be a good smoky for the Ashes now too.
I think its fantastic that JL is getting results from Maxwell.......harsh comments have been said by JL in regards to Maxwell but he is challenging him and atm its working

we all know how talented maxwell is.....we all just want him to show it more and be the best possible player he can be

Maxwell is in the one-day team partially for his batting and also partially for his bowling. He doesn't "need runs" as much as other batsmen to justify his place in the team. Regardless of how many runs Khawaja, SMarsh and Warner (and to a lesser extent, Smith and Finch) score, they aren't directly competing with Maxwell for a spot in the team.
I'd say in the limited overs formats, his fielding is probably more valuable than his bowling.

A great start by Maxi with Lancashire,still say he should be a certainty to be picked in the ashes squad.Huge talent lets give him the opportunity to play test cricket again.Just struggle to understand why this talented Australian cicketer has not been given the opportunity to play more test cricket.

Because in the majority of instances a better option has been available (ie. the 2017/18 Ashes conspiracy).

I like Maxwell, but did laugh at this against the students in the warm up he scored 80 odd:

Lucky he was 80 odd and not 0.lol.Still a lot of cricket to be played before the ashes squad is announced but he is on the right track so far.

Maxi has very hairy arms.. Just noticing and probably embarrassing the dude as well.. but he has a big heart and can bat as well..
so I am going to be shot to the nether regions for this.. Finch is going to crap on my head for this.. bugging out dude..

His 80 wasn't even div two, it was a warmup game against a university.

While it may be div two, Middlesex's bowling attack for this game is:

Tim Murtagh
Steven Finn
Toby Roland-Jones
James Harris

That's better than many shield bowling lineups. In any case Murtagh castled Maxwell for 1 in the first innings.

He got a 5 for in County cricket, first time in a FC match he has done it, two failures with the bat though. Needs runs obviously but could be a sneaky number six all-rounder pick if a turner appears during the Ashes.

He’d have played a lot more Tests if he bowled leggies or left arm.
