Glenn Maxwell to not play against England due to a concussion
The 4th leading team on the ICC Rankings Table will compete with 2029 World Cup champions England in its next on November 4 scheduled to be held at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. While England’s hope of making it to the semifinals is hanging by a thread provided that they suffered back to back losses, Australia is at the 4th position on the leaderboard having witnessed game-changing wins.
Maxwell’s dismal outing
Ahead of an important match against England, Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell sustained his second injury in a period of more than 11 months. The incident took place when the all-rounder was standing at the back of a moving golf cart after touring at the Kalhaar Blues and Green golf club in Ahmedabad itself. It was only when he lost his balance while standing and fell off his back sustaining a concussion along with some facial bruises.
Glenn likely to miss only one game
Following the mishap, Australian Coach Andrew McDonald gave an update of the situation stating “In transporting him back from the clubhouse to the team bus, Glenn Maxwell came off the back of a cart and has suffered a small concussion, so he will go into concussion protocols for the next period of time and will unfortunately miss the England game.”
Confirming that no other player will be named as a replacement for the all-rounder, Andrew said “He is doing well. He will start some light exercise today and we feel as though it will be a relatively straightforward return to play.” He further asserted that he will likely return for the game against Afghanistan scheduled to be held next week in Mumbai. “It was just a clear cut incident …he’s an important player for us, hopefully it’s just the one game he misses.”
