The 2023 World Cup begins on October 5th. Shortly before, tension had increased in Australia. Team veteran Glenn Maxwell was left off the team due to an injury. The T20 and ODI series will be held between Australia and South Africa from August 30th. Maxwell will not be able to play in the T20 series. According to the ICC, Maxwell suffered an ankle injury. Maxwell’s pre-World Cup injury is a problem for Australia.
The Australian team is on a tour of South Africa. A series of 5 ODIs and 3 T20 matches is to be played here. Maxwell trained in Durban for the T20 series. He was injured in the process. According to the news published on the ICC website, Maxwell has suffered an ankle injury. He is returning to Australia due to injury. His wife is also with Maxwell. However, it is a relief for Australia that Maxwell has not sustained a serious injury.
Australia team selector Tony Dodemed has responded to Maxwell’s injury. Dodemed says the team doesn’t want to take any chances with Maxwell. He said, “We will focus on Maxwell’s recovery.” I hope he will be available for the three-game ODI series against India ahead of the World Cup.
