Glenn Maxwell of Australia has finally disclosed how he broke his leg. Forced him to miss the present ODI series against England. He has also stated that he is unlikely to be healthy in time for the Test series against India, which is scheduled for February of next year. It’s unclear how long Maxwell will be out after breaking his leg after a buddy fell on it during a 50th birthday party in November.
“One of my mates, who was also one of my schoolteachers, we were laughing about something and I pretended to chase him off somewhere. I reckon we both took about three or four steps out there, and both slipped at the same time. I just got my foot stuck a little bit, and he fell, unfortunately at a really bad angle and landed straight on my leg,”Maxwell stated this on Cricket Australia’s Unplayable Podcast.
“It just snapped. I heard and felt every part of it. It was pretty painful. I was screaming a bit and he was like, ‘please tell me you’re joking, please tell me you’re joking’,”he continued
Maxwell also described his feelings after breaking his leg, saying he was in “agony.”
“I probably didn’t sleep for two days while I was in agony. It was a pretty horrible couple of days. My wife was unbelievable through it all. I shattered my fibula. So that one I think was the first snap I heard. It was snapped in half, but it also shattered through the bone,”Maxwell stated.
“There’s a time limit on when they’re going to announce that squad to India and to be fair, there’s a high chance that I won’t make it. They’re obviously going have to see me playing cricket and they’re obviously going to have to take a big risk if they do take me.”Maxwell commented on the upcoming Test series against India.
“But I think that’s probably why I don’t want to sort of set any dates or timelines of when I can get back. I would dearly love to be okay for that but I’m a slave to how my body recovers and how quickly I can I suppose get the strength back into it and then get back playing cricket again,”He went on to say.
