Glenn Maxwell takes an indefinite break from cricket to deal with mental health issues

Australian cricketer Glenn Maxwell has taken an indefinite break from all formats of cricket to deal with the ‘mental health difficulties’.

While his return to the international cricket is not known, D’Arcy Short has been roped in as Maxwell’s replacement for the last T20I against Sri Lanka.

Talking about Maxwell, the team psychologist Dr Michael Lloyd said, “Glenn Maxwell has been experiencing some difficulties with regards to his mental health. As a result, he will spend a short time away from the game. Glenn was proactive in identifying these issues and engaging with support staff.”
