He was injured at a friend’s birthday party and was sidelined for the entire season. He fell while playing golf in the World Cup and could not play two matches. Glenn Maxwell started going to the hospital while listening to friends’ music.
Australian media reported yesterday that Maxwell went to a pub in Adelaide last Friday to see a performance by Six and Out, a band of New South Wales first-class cricketers. Brett Lee and his brother Shane Lee performed for this band.
Maxwell collapsed in the middle of the performance. He was taken to the hospital unconscious. It was later learned that Maxwell went there after playing golf during the day. However, Maxwell, who suffered from dehydration after drinking too much, left the hospital soon after. Excessive drinking also played a role in foot injuries in 2022 or golf court incidents in 2023.
After this incident, Maxwell was not included in the ODI team announced yesterday against the West Indies. However, Cricket Australia said in a statement that they are aware of Maxwell’s incident and that it has nothing to do with him not being included in the squad for the series. He has been given rest to keep him healthy after handling the pressure of the game. However, the association has also announced a detailed investigation of the incident.
Last Friday, not only Maxwell, but several other cricketers from Australia and West Indies went to listen to the song of Six and Out. Maxwell was not a member of the Test team but did take part in a golf tournament that day. Two eyewitnesses, who did not wish to be named, said the Australian all-rounder was suffering from dehydration.
Meanwhile, in the press conference before the Brisbane Test, Australian captain Pat Cummins was asked about this, ‘We are all adults, we all party at night, you have to make your own decisions. He was not a member of the Australian team at the time of the incident, but was participating in an individual event. So it’s a little different. Whatever decision you make, you will have to bear the consequences of that decision.’
