Maxwell gets his Test shot as Head succumbs to intense Sri Lankan workload

Glenn Maxwell has been drafted into Australia’s Test squad on the tour of Sri Lanka.

The Victorian all-rounder was called up on Thursday night ahead of the opening Test match in Galle next week as Travis Head recovers from a minor hamstring strain.

Star white-ball striker Maxwell has only played seven Tests, making his debut nine years ago against India.

He also scored his one and only Test century against India in Ranchi in 2017.

Jon Holland, Matthew Kuhnemann and Todd Murphy will also stay in Sri Lanka following the Australia A tour to help with the Test preparations and to develop their cricket experience on the subcontinent.

Earlier, Head has been added to touring Australia’s bulging injury list, ruled out of the fifth and final ODI in Colombo on Friday with a hamstring problem.


It is understood Head had run more than 15km during game three, with the heavy grounds and humid conditions causing havoc with recovery.

The 28-year-old suffered the minor hamstring strain during the game four defeat but still managed to run more than 11km.

Fast bowler Mitchell Starc (finger) and Steve Smith (quad) also remain on the sidelines for the dead-rubber match, after Sri Lanka wrapped up the series with their four-run win on Wednesday.

Having all three still on the sidelines is less than ideal preparation for the first Test, starting on Wednesday.
