Australia

Glenn Maxwell is likely to be absent from the 3-match ODI series tour to India. Australia’s noted all-rounder Glenn Maxwell is suffering from a slight ankle inflammation.

GLENN MAXWELL FACING INJURY ISSUES

The ODI series is just before the World Cup 2023. The ICC Men’s ODI World Cup is within a month, on October 5, 2023, in India as the host nation. Five times Champions Australia is definitely among the strong competitors. However, the Australian team is currently facing issues concerning the injury cases of several players. The recent injury of Glen Maxwell in his ankle being a bit sore is an add-on to the concern regarding fitness.

Glenn Maxwell was quoted saying by ESPNcricinfo that

I still want to play some part of that India series, but I’m not feeling any pressure on it. The selectors and the staff have been brilliant with me as well. They don’t want to put too much pressure on me to sort of set that date because they know they’ve got a bit of extra time before the World Cup. So instead of rushing it and probably putting myself a week or two behind, being able to give myself extra time and make sure we get through the whole tournament”

He further added that

“I don’t think I could have predicted how sore I was going to be once I got to South Africa, but it was one of those things. Even when I went to train that day, I still felt fine. There was nothing wrong. Something just got impinged. I think one of the tendons around my ankle was a little bit inflamed, there’s a bit of swelling, so it kept on catching, which meant it just gave me a bit of pain”
