Australian cricketer Glenn Maxwell recently made headlines after being hospitalized following an incident at an Adelaide pub. Reports suggested that Maxwell lost consciousness backstage after attending a performance by Brett Lee’s band ‘Six and Out’ at the Governer Hindmarsh hotel.

Not Under Investigation by Cricket Australia

Contrary to initial reports, Maxwell’s manager, Ben Tippett, confirmed that Cricket Australia (CA) is not investigating the all-rounder for the incident. Tippett mentioned that Maxwell is “a little embarrassed by the whole thing,” emphasizing that there is no ongoing scrutiny by CA.

Return to Training

Despite feeling “sore and sorry” the day after the incident, Maxwell has returned to Melbourne and resumed training. Tippett reassured that the cricketer is not facing any formal investigation, providing clarity on the situation.

Pre-Planned Rest Unrelated to Incident

CA’s chief executive, Nick Hockley, clarified that Maxwell’s planned rest from the upcoming ODI series against the West Indies was pre-arranged and unrelated to the pub incident. Hockley stated that it was premature to speculate on the reports, indicating that they are still gathering information.

Captain Cummins Comments

Australian skipper Pat Cummins commented on the incident, suggesting that only Maxwell could answer questions about being more cautious with his choices. Cummins affirmed that he was present at the venue but did not interact with Maxwell and left early.

Conclusion: Maxwell’s Situation
