Cricket Australia Investigates Glenn Maxwell’s Alcohol-Related Incident in Adelaide

Maxwell was taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital after an ambulance was called, but reports suggest that he spent only a brief period at the facility and did not stay overnight.

Cricket Australia is currently investigating an incident involving star all-rounder Glenn Maxwell, who was hospitalized following an alcohol-related incident in Adelaide. The 35-year-old was attending a performance by former Australia Test cricketer Brett Lee’s band, Six and Out, at a venue in the city when the incident occurred.

Maxwell was taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital after an ambulance was called, but reports suggest that he spent only a brief period at the facility and did not stay overnight. Cricket Australia has taken note of the incident and is actively seeking further information as part of its investigation.

The organization clarified that Maxwell’s replacement in the ODI squad, which came after the Big Bash League (BBL), was not related to this incident. Maxwell is expected to return for the upcoming three-match T20I series against the West Indies, scheduled to commence on February 9.

The incident has raised concerns about Maxwell’s well-being, especially given his history of injuries, including a concussion during the ODI World Cup in India last year and a broken leg in late 2022. As one of Australia’s key players, Maxwell’s health and availability for future matches are crucial considerations.

Cricket Australia’s investigation aims to shed light on the details of the incident and its potential impact on Maxwell’s health and career. Further updates are anticipated as the investigation progresses.
