Maxwell, who was rested from yesterday's fifth and final one-dayer against Mahendra singh Dhoni's men is expected to be available for the second T20 in Melbourne on January 29.
"He has still got a little slight hamstring niggle so he will spend a few days in Melbourne at home and join the squad when we get there in a couple of days," acting coach Michael Di Venuto told reporters at airport here.
Maxwell made 169 runs in the four matches that he played in the just-concluded series averaging 56.33. Di Venuto is doing the interim coaching duties as Darren Lehmann had to be hospitalized after being diagnosed with Deep Vein Thrombosis for the second time in his life.
In Maxwell's absence, Travis Head could make his international debut for the side tomorrow. Di Venuto said the upcoming series against India could be considered selection trial for the World T20 in March-April.
