Australian Superstar to Miss Pakistan Series for Wedding With Indian Girlfriend

Glenn Maxwell, regarded as one of the best hard-hitting hitters in white-ball cricket, will miss the white-ball leg of Australia’s tour to Pakistan due to his wedding to Vini Raman, an Indian-origin Melbourne-based lady.

The 33-year old batter had declared during the T20 World Cup in November last year that he will not be able to be a part of the Pakistan tour owing to his wedding in late March.

Talking to Fox Sports during the third T20I against Sri Lanka in Canberra, the right-handed batter revealed that it was hard to change the dates of the wedding. Despite consulting Cricket Australia, the heavy hitter explained that the clash was unavoidable because of the continual schedule adjustments.

“There was a two-week gap when I could potentially have it when I planned the dates with CA,” Maxwell explained. “So when I figured that out, I was relieved that I wouldn’t be missing in any of the series.” “Then I went to the [CA] contract meeting in the middle of last year, and they said, ‘This is when the Pakistan series is on,’ and I thought, ‘Well, obviously that’s changed since the last talk we had,'” Maxwell recalled.

Michael Nesser, Australia’s right-arm medium-pacer, has been ruled out of the next Test series against Pakistan owing to a side strain, and Mark Steketee, an uncapped bowler, has been named as his substitute.
