Maxwell added to Stars' squad
Batsman on 13-man list for Heat game tonight
The KFC T20 Big Bash League Technical Committee has approved the addition of Glenn Maxwell to an extended Melbourne Stars squad for its match against the Brisbane Heat at the Gabba tonight.
Under the BBL Team Naming Policy, teams must name a maximum of 13 players by 2pm the day before each match, however with Maxwell in Sydney with the Australia squad for the Vodafone Pink Test, he wasn’t able to be named by the Stars by the required deadline yesterday.
With Maxwell named 12th man for the Test, he was released after the start of play at the SCG this morning and will be available for the Stars’ match tonight and also the BIG MELBOURNE DERBY against the Renegades at the MCG on Sunday night.
