Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell suffered a bizarre injury after Australia’s T20 World Cup campaign at home got over when he damaged his left fibula while attending a friend’s birthday party. He had to undergo surgery which forced him to miss the three-match ODI series at home against England. He has expressed his agony over losing five kgs of weight in two weeks after the surgery.

Maxwell was present next to the Shane Warne statue at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) and was wearing a moon boot and used crutches to walk. He mentioned the recovery process is quite slow.

He is still hopeful of returning towards the final stages of the ongoing BBL 2022-23 season, which would require an intense focus on rehab. Glenn Maxwell said:


“I want it to be done and over with quickly. I don’t want to be on crutches anymore. I don’t want to be in a boot but it’s just the process I’m going through at the moment on a bike, in the pool.” 

“I haven‘t got a return date for you yet until I can start walking properly and do other things, playing golf, doing some basic things around the house.”

“I‘d love to be playing next game, that’d be great, but also not realistic. The leg has been through a bit of trauma that I need to make sure that I do everything I can to make sure it’s not a recurring injury with my ankle joint and that I can make sure that I’m solid on it for the rest of my career,” Glenn Maxwell said ahead of the Melbourne Stars’ first home game of this BBL season on Friday night.

“The surgeon and doctors seem to think I’ll make a full recovery but that’s also up to me and making sure that I can do everything right.”

“It’s my recovery. So a fair bit is in my court at the moment. So as I said, I’m just gonna do everything I possibly can to get right. I’ll go see the surgeon next week and hopefully get some more good news,” he added.
