Australian cricketer Glenn Maxwell takes an indefinite break from playing cricket based on his mental health issues.
He wouldn’t be a part of the final T20I against Sri Lanka as well as the Pakistan series.
Executive general manager of the national teams, Ben Oliver, said on the development:
“The well-being of our players and staff is paramount. Glenn has our full support. Cricket Australia will work collaboratively with Cricket Victoria’s support staff to ensure Glenn’s well-being and his reintegration into the game.
“We ask that everyone gives Glenn and his family and friends space; and respects their privacy at this time. He’s a special player and an important part of the Australian cricket family. We hope to see him back on the team during the summer. It’s important we look after Glenn and all our players.”
Dr. Michael Lloyd said:
“Glenn Maxwell has been experiencing some difficulties with regards to his mental health. As a result, he will spend a short time away from the game. Glenn was proactive in identifying these issues and engaging with support staff.”
