"They haven't got a big 145 (kmph) plus bowler or a trick spinner that some of the other teams have" says Maxwell

Australian middle order batsman Glenn Maxwell went and ahead and stated that Australians will go all-out against the weak bowling attack of Bangladesh. Australians would look to win their next fixture against Bangladesh handsomely to be in contention for the semi-final spot in the Champions Trophy.
Australians shared a point with New Zealand in the second match of the Champions Trophy on June 2 due to persistent rains at Edgbaston. The Kangaroos are supposed to take on a spirited Bangladeshi side tomorrow at Kennington Oval, London.
Glenn Maxwell did appreciate the batting effort of the Bangladeshis who posted a daunting total of 305 in front of the home team. Bangladeshis would have been demoralised after being at the receiving end of the onslaught from Hales, Morgan and Root.
“I think they batted quite well against England, The biggest thing for them was because the wicket was so good they struggled to make inroads into England’s batting line-up.” quoted Glenn Maxwell according to India Today. Citing the absence of an express pacer in the Bangladeshis in the lineup, Maxwell revealed that Australians would look to attack the bowlers.
“That is something we can maybe target. They haven’t got a big 145 (kmph) plus bowler or a trick spinner that some of the other teams maybe do, and we can target that and go after them.” said Maxwell.
Australians backing Head ahead of Maxwell in spin department
The Victorian further lauded the efforts of Travis Head who is currently handling the part-time spin department in the Aussie lineup.”I thought ‘Heady’ did well, but I have been working hard on my bowling and hopefully I will get an opportunity at some stage. I just keep running around and keep trying to find where the ball is going to go, keep trying to follow it.” concluded the explosive batsman who hasn’t bowled for Australian in the last nine games.
