Australian cricketer Glenn Maxwell is under investigation after being rushed to the Royal Adelaide Hospital following a ‘big night out’ on Friday, reportedly spent watching Brett Lee’s band.

Australian cricketer Glenn Maxwell is currently under investigation after an incident that required him to be rushed to the hospital following a ‘big night out’ in Adelaide on Friday, where he had been watching Brett Lee’s band, Six and Out, at a pub. Despite being taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital by ambulance on January 19, he didn’t spend the night there and is reportedly back in training for the West Indies T20Is scheduled for next month.

Cricket Australia (CA) is aware of the situation and has initiated an investigation, although CA denies Maxwell’s exclusion from the ODI series squad was related to this incident, clarifying that he was initially part of the 13-man squad before the developments.

Over the past two years, Glenn Maxwell has faced unusual incidents, including injuring his leg at a birthday party and suffering a concussion after falling from a golf cart during the 2023 ODI World Cup. Despite these setbacks, he made a remarkable comeback with a double-century against Afghanistan.

Recently, Maxwell informed his Melbourne Stars teammates about stepping down from the BBL team’s captaincy after missing the finals. Expressing frustration over the team’s four-year absence from finals contention, Maxwell highlighted the challenges, including injuries and timing issues, that have hindered their success despite having a competitive squad.

Australia has announced a 13-man squad for the upcoming ODI series, introducing newcomers Xavier Bartlett and Jake Fraser-McGurk. The reigning champions have further opted to rest their formidable fast-bowling trio of Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, and Josh Hazlewood for the series.
