Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell continues to evade questions regarding the ambulance drama that unfolded after a night out in Adelaide on January 19th. Despite regaining consciousness and being released from the hospital shortly after, Maxwell has remained tight-lipped about the incident, leaving fans and media questioning the details.
The incident adds to Maxwell’s recent history of peculiar injuries. In 2022, he suffered a broken leg during a birthday party, followed by a bizarre golf cart accident that ruled him out of the 2023 ODI World Cup match against England. This pattern of off-field setbacks has further fueled public curiosity surrounding the recent ambulance drama.
Finch Backs Maxwell, Emphasizes Physical Wellbeing
Despite the incident and injury history, fellow cricketer and long-time friend Aaron Finch remains confident in Maxwell’s future performance. Finch highlighted Maxwell’s recent on-field form and emphasized the importance of maintaining physical fitness for continued success.
“I think what we’ve seen over the last probably three years is the best of Glenn Maxwell on the field,” Finch said. “And that’s because he’s got his body right. And then obviously the broken leg that was not ideal. And I think over the next couple of years, we’ll still see the best of him. So that’ll be part of it, making sure that his body stays healthy and he does everything right to make sure that he stays on the park as long as possible.”
Return to Action on the Horizon
Although details surrounding the ambulance incident remain unclear, Maxwell is expected to return to action in the upcoming T20I series against West Indies starting on February 9th. Whether he addresses the controversy before then remains to be seen, but his performance on the field will undoubtedly be under close scrutiny.
