Glenn Maxwell, an all-rounder for Australia, has finally explained how he ended up breaking his leg, which ultimately caused him to be unable to participate in the ongoing one-day international series against England.
He has also stated that it is unlikely that he will be able to get fit in time for the test series that is scheduled to take place against India in February of the following year.
After a friend fell on Glenn Maxwell broken leg during a 50th birthday party in November, it is unknown how long he will be out of action because of the injury. In November, Maxwell broke his leg.
“When I was joking around with a friend who was also one of my teachers, I pretended to be chasing him away from somewhere while we were laughing about something.
I would say that both of us took about three or four steps out there before we both slipped and fell at the same time.
I just got my foot stuck a little bit, and he ended up falling at an unfortunate angle and landing directly on my leg “Maxwell said this while he was being interviewed for the Unplayable Podcast by Cricket Australia.
“It just broke in two. I was able to perceive each and every aspect of it. It caused quite a bit of agony. I let out a few screams, and he kept saying, “please tell me you’re joking, please tell me you’re joking,” while I was doing so “he added.
Maxwell also described how he felt after breaking his leg, saying that he was in “agony” and that it was the worst pain he had ever experienced.
“During the time that I was in excruciating pain, it’s likely that I didn’t get any sleep at all. It was a fairly awful couple of days all around. Throughout it all, my wife was nothing short of incredible.
My fibula was smashed in the fall. Therefore, I believe that one was the first snap that I heard. It broke in half, but it also shattered all the way through the bone, “said Maxwell.
Maxwell made these comments in reference to the upcoming test series against India: “There is a time limit on when they are going to announce that squad to India, and to be completely honest, there is a high chance that I will not be able to make it.
They are obviously going to have to watch me play cricket, and if they do decide to take me, they are obviously going to have to assume a significant amount of risk.”
“However, I don’t want to sort of set any dates or timelines for when I can get back, and I think that’s probably because of what I just said.
I would dearly love to be able to play in that, but I’m a slave to how quickly my body can recover and how quickly I can get the strength back into it so that I can then get back to playing cricket again “he continued his statement.
