The Australian team was yet to emerge from the shock of being eliminated from the Super 12 round of the T20 World Cup 2022 that on Sunday 13 November, another bad news came out for them. The Kangaroo team has not been able to perform consistently for some time. In the World Cup too, the team was badly defeated by New Zealand. Then even the victory against Afghanistan was not easily achieved. Now when the team was getting together for the upcoming England series, at the same time the star player of the team and the batsman who was coming out as a contender for the T20 team met with an accident.
Actually, the accident of the Australian player was not caused by any vehicle, but while dancing at a friend’s birthday party, his leg got stuck and he became a victim of the accident. We are talking about the strong kangaroo player Glenn Maxwell. He has broken his leg in this incident and now he can stay away from cricket for a long time, about 3-4 months. According to information received from the Australian website, Maxwell has also undergone surgery with immediate effect on Sunday. According to the information, it has also been learned that Maxwell and his friends were not intoxicated at the time of the incident.
Chief Selector’s statement
Glenn Maxwell has been ruled out of the upcoming England series following this horrific injury. This series of three ODIs will be played from November 17 to November 22. Maxwell is currently out of this series and Sean Abbott has got his place in the team. On this whole matter, Australia’s chief selector George Bailey said, “An unfortunate incident happened to Glenn. He has been looking in great form for the last few matches. He is a key player of the team in white ball cricket. We see him consistently till recovery. will support.”
RCB also increased tension
