BBL 2023-24: The first match of the Australian T20 league BBL 2023-24 (Big Bash League) was played on December 7th. This game was played between Brisbane Heat and Melbourne Stars. In this match, Brisbane Heat defeated Melbourne Stars by a huge margin of 103 runs. During this game, a Melbourne Stars player was injured. This player plays for the RCB team in the IPL. We’re talking about Glenn Maxwell. Due to this injury, Maxwell will also be out of the next game. In such a situation, his team Melbourne Stars’ hopes of a comeback after the poor start in the BBL have suffered a major setback.
Maxwell looked troubled by injury
In the first game of the tournament, Maxwell suffered an arm injury while batting against Brisbane Heat, in that game Maxwell looked in great form. He had scored 23 runs in 14 balls but was ruled out soon after suffering an injury. Maxwell was examined twice by the on-field medical team. After he got out, he was seen applying ice to his hands in the dugout. In Maxwell’s absence, Marcus Stoinis will have more responsibility for leading the batting line-up and the Stars have also lost an important spin bowling option in Maxwell in the next game.
This player’s injury is also worrying
Meanwhile, the Melbourne Stars are also concerned about the fitness of Nathan Coulter-Nile, who sustained a calf injury during the game. He will undergo a scan to determine the severity of the injury and a decision will be made on his availability before the game against the Scorchers.
The Stars’ statement added that Nathan Coulter-Nile will undergo a scan this weekend to rule out a calf injury he sustained while bowling against Brisbane Heat. The club will provide a further update ahead of Wednesday’s game against the Scorchers. Coulter-Nile didn’t have a good day either, giving away 35 runs in four overs while taking just one wicket. As for the game, the Stars lost by 103 runs as they could only score 111 runs while chasing the target of 215 runs and were all eliminated.
