Despite nursing a bruised tendon above his right knee and a sore left hamstring, which rendered him doubtful for the fifth and final ODI here today, Maxwell today took to social media to clear the air about the reports.
"Taken out of context... I also complimented him (Kohli) on how well he had played and got his team into a winning position," Maxwell wrote on his twitter handle. Maxwell, who had hit 96 and 41 in the 3rd and 4th ODIs to help Australia clinch the series 4-0, also clarified his comments about Kohli.
"I was asked to give a bit of an assessment of who was dominating with the bat in this series, and I said, “I don't think anyone in the world is hitting the ball better than Virat at the moment'," Maxwell said.
"A lot of us are still in awe of what he can do on the field, and the way that he all but took the game away from us the other night in Canberra was something that we were pretty much powerless to stop.
"But some of the reporting I've seen today makes it seem like I was personally attacking one of the best players in the game about the way he plays, which is completely untrue," he added.
