Star Australia all-rounder, Glenn Maxwell has got a sore ankle and may skip the upcoming ODI series against India.

This is also to ensure that he becomes fit in time to be able to fully participate in the ODI World Cup next month.

Recently, Maxwell had accompanied Australia to play against South Africa in a T20I series that has given him a swollen ankle.

As is the case, Australia is already having a tough time managing the injuries of its star players.

Meanwhile, Australia can once again lift the ODI World Cup trophy because they have a squad that can do it all.

With a swollen ankle, Maxwell has stated that he may skip the India series to focus fully on the World Cup.

I still want to play some part of that India series, but I’m not feeling any pressure on it. The selectors and the staff have been brilliant with me as well. They don’t want to put too much pressure on me to sort of set that date because they know they’ve got a bit of extra time before the World Cup. So instead of rushing it and probably putting myself a week or two behind, being able to give myself extra time and make sure we get through the whole tournament.

Maxwell is set to meet Cricket Australia medical staff today

Moreover, Maxwell met the medical staff at Cricket Australia to work on his swollen ankle which gave him trouble in South Africa.

Also, the staff will make the final decision on whether Maxwell should go for the ODI series against India and play the World Cup or not.

I don’t think I could have predicted how sore I was going to be once I got to South Africa, but it was one of those things. Even when I went to train that day, I still felt fine. There was nothing wrong. Something just got impinged. I think one of the tendons around my ankle was little bit inflamed, there’s a bit of swelling, so it kept on catching, which meant it just gave me a bit of pain.
