Australian cricketer Glenn Maxwell has expressed his gratitude to the cricket hierarchy for their unwavering support following an alcohol-related incident at an Adelaide pub on January 19.
Maxwell, 35, was hospitalized after collapsing at the pub, an incident he described as ‘less than ideal’. Despite the setback, Maxwell remained focused on his recovery and expressed appreciation for the support he received, particularly from his family and the cricket management.
The incident marked the latest in a series of mishaps for the all-rounder, including a foot injury after a fall during a house party and a concussion during the recent T20 World Cup in India.
Despite these challenges, Maxwell’s determination and resilience were evident as he returned to the field, notably convincing team management to let him play in Sunday’s game against the West Indies in Adelaide. His efforts were rewarded with a record-equalling fifth T20I hundred, a feat he had a premonition about earlier in the day.
Reflecting on his remarkable performance, Maxwell credited his intuition and his understanding of the opposition’s bowling attack. His century not only showcased his skill but also his ability to seize opportunities when they arise.
Maxwell’s comeback serves as a testament to his strength of character and determination, as he continues to make valuable contributions to Australian cricket.
