Glenn Maxwell `unfazed` by poor ODI form

Maxwell has a golden opportunity in the ODI series to cement a place on next month`s four-Test tour as an all rounder, however there are concerns over whether his spin bowling is up to scratch, News.com.au repots.
In his six ODIs to date since debuting against Afghanistan last year, Maxwell is yet to take a wicket and in two matches so far against Sri Lanka with the bat, he hasn`t made it out of single figures. Maxwell said selection in the touring part to India is on his mind, but stressed he isn`t too concerned about his slow start, as he believes he performing well against Sri Lanka despite lack of success.
Maxwell said he`s not beating himself up over his wicket less run and is contented with how his off spinners are coming out in practice. Maxwell said Sri Lankan batsmen are good players of spin, adding that the pacy Australian wickets are not conducive for spin bowling and believes these two factors are major reasons behind his lack of success.
