Maxwell won’t be playing the first 3 matches of IPL 2022 and this might be the reason he was not named captain. Despite not being named in the white-ball series against Pakistan, Cricket Australia barred all centrally contracted players from competing in the IPL until April 5, meaning the NOC will only be applicable from April 6.

On the other hand, Former South Africa captain Faf du Plessis was selected as captain. He has vast experience in captaincy having led the team in all 3 formats including the World Cup.
