Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell has refused to comment in the controversy over Mitchell Johnson’s scathing column on David Warner and the aftermath. He instead asked fans to celebrate the fact that Australia are Test as well as ODI world champions. However, a massive controversy took place in Australian cricket after Johnson attacked Warner and chief selector George Bailey in a column in The West Australian, where he questioned a Test farewell for Warner.

Admitting that there has been a lot of talk going around, Maxwell told SEN Radio: “There’s a lot of chat around it (the Johnson and Warner saga). But I think coming into this first Test, we’ve just got to make sure that as Australians we’re supporting our team and we’re celebrating how successful this team has been over the two-year period of the World Test Championship cycle. It’d be nice to celebrate them this summer and the same thing goes with the One Day group, we play against the West Indies at the back end of the summer. I’m hoping Australia just gets around both teams who have had extremely successful periods.”

However, as for the Johnson-Warner-Bailey controversy, Glenn Maxwell shared his point also. Instead, he applauded the veteran Aussie opener as a champion cricketer.

“I’m not going to throw my name into some headlines about this,” Glenn Maxwell concluded. “Davey’s been an absolute champion of Australian cricket for a long period of time and the selectors were pretty clear on what they thought of it (selecting him),” he said.“I’m looking forward to seeing Davey in that first Test and him making a lot of runs this summer.”
