Mirpur: After his scintillating innings of 73 off 34 balls against Paksitan though for a lost cause, Australian batsman Glenn Maxwell said he has worked his way on how to tackle spinners. “Attack is the best form of defence. We did not have too much choice there as the run rate was high,” said Maxwell.

Mexwell explained why he decided to launch such a brutal counter-attack.”When you get in after losing two in the first over and there are only two men outside the circle, it’s easy to go over the top. “The wicket was good as the ball was new and by the end of it, the ball started to turn a bit more,” he said.
