Maxwell, who is currently leading the Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League (IPL), scored his maiden Test century at Ranchi before following it up with a top-score of 45 in Australia's second innings of the fourth Test in Dharamsala.
Maxwell, however seemed clueless on the composition of the Australia squad for the Ashes, starting with the first Test at the Gabba this year.
The Victorian acknowledged that given Australia's tendency to opt for a seam-bowling allrounder in the top six for Tests on home soil, his spot is far from secure.
"I'd love to say that I'd be a good chance, but I have absolutely no idea," Maxwell was quoted as saying by cricket.com.au.
"I don't know which way they're thinking. We've seen in the past that they like to have a medium-pace all-rounder at No.6 and if they were to go that way in the first Test, I think that'd be fine."
"But if I was to get an opportunity to play a Test at home, I'd love to take it the same way I did in Ranchi and make the most of it.
"But I'm not trying to get my hopes up too much. If it happens, it happens," he added.
The dashing right-hander further said he would not take undue pressure on himself to get back to the side.
"I'll still train and work as hard as I can to play, but I'm probably not putting as much pressure on myself as I probably did in previous years," he said.
