The email at centre of Glenn Maxwell selection controversy

Australia coach Justin Langer has said that he's had "zero knowledge" of Glenn Maxwell being advised by Cricket Australia to skip the county cricket past year on assurances that he will be selected for the Australia A tour of India.

National selector Trevor Hohns on Wednesday denied being aware of a directive around Maxwell's playing schedule last winter, saying players were "free to make up their own decisions on what they go and play".

But when questioned on Maxwell's omission and the suggestion there could be a character clash, Hohns said the issues were purely cricket-related. Maxwell has also spoken about his latest omission, lamenting the lack of red-ball preparation afforded to him in recent months.

Langer was asked about the claim that selectors told Maxwell not to play First Class cricket in England to focus on limited overs cricket ahead of the World Cup. Langer told the journalist.

"Are you certain that's what happened?" What are you asking?

"You're telling me it did happen", he said during the heated back-and-forth.

A tense exchange between Justin Langer and a journo, before the Aussie coach later apologised.

Langer later apologized and said, "Sorry for getting grumpy". I don't like getting grumpy but there's so many stories that go around about so much stuff. Sorry everybody... we can talk about it after.

"But the truth is a attractive thing".

Quiney, who played two Tests for Australia and was a long-time teammate of Maxwell's at Victoria, believes there's a personality clash between the talented all-rounder and influential people at the selection table.

"I can't wait to get up there and in amongst it."Burns, who has played 14 Tests, has been knocking on the door this season with Queensland, while Renshaw has been unlucky not to get another call-up until now, since his last appearance at Johannesburg in 2018". Langer repeated. "No, I've got zero knowledge of that", he then said, before calling it "careless whispers".

Worldwide duties with the white ball have prevented Maxwell from putting forward a strong case in Sheffield Shield cricket and while chairman of selectors Trevor Hohns denied the 30-year-old's personality was a factor in his repeated snubbing, Quiney wasn't buying it.

"There have been some reports about personality - it is literally false.

It's not true." "He is crystal clear what he has to do, and that's important that he knows that and that I know that as the coach and one of the selectors, and all the conjecture about it, that's all part of the noise.", he added.

Glenn Maxwell reacts after scoring a double century against NSW last summer.
