Cricket Australia is looking into the matter of Glenn Maxwell after he was taken to the hospital following a night out.

Cricket officials are currently looking into an “occurrence” involving Australian player Glenn Maxwell in Adelaide, which resulted in his hospitalization.

Just hours after being withdrawn from the upcoming one-day series for being “managed”, Maxwell was revealed to be the subject of an investigation by Cricket Australia.

The individual, who is 35 years old, was present in Adelaide for a golf event towards the conclusion of Australia’s initial Test match against the West Indies, following the conclusion of the Melbourne Stars’ Big Bash League season.

According to Australian Associated Press, it is believed that Maxwell attended a Six & Out concert on the night of Friday, January 19th, which is the date in question.

The Gov, a popular live music venue in Adelaide, was also attended by Australian captain Pat Cummins and other members of the Test team including Steve Smith and Alex Carey.

Six & Out is a musical group consisting of former cricket players from New South Wales and Australia, including Brett Lee, Shane Lee, Richard Chee Quee, Gavin Robertson, and Brad McNamara.

The police have not been involved in any part of this, but CA has confirmed that they will be conducting an investigation.

A spokesperson for Cricket Australia stated that they are aware of an incident involving Glenn Maxwell in Adelaide over the weekend and are currently gathering more details.

The decision to replace him in the ODI squad was not connected to him specifically, but rather was made after the BBL and considering his personal management plan.

Maxwell is anticipated to come back for the T20 matches.

Maxwell, who has not participated in a Test match since 2017, will not be playing in the upcoming one-day series. Instead, players known for their performance in Test matches such as Steve Smith, Travis Head, Marnus Labuschagne, and Cameron Green will be representing the team in the white-ball games against the West Indies.

This is the most recent in a string of strange accidents for an Australian player who was instrumental in their impressive victory at the 50-over World Cup in India last year. His incredible unbeaten score of 201 saved his team from what seemed like a certain loss against Afghanistan.

Maxwell suffered a concussion during the tournament when he fell off a golf cart, causing him to miss the match against England.

Maxwell sustained a broken leg in November 2022 after slipping while playfully pursuing a friend at a birthday celebration.

The occurrence caused him to lose his place in Australia’s Test squad for their tour of India. He was also unable to participate in the entire BBL for that season.
