Australia all-rounder, Glenn Maxwell has suffered an injury to his fibula and is currently out of the Australian squad.
He suffered this injury while attending a friend’s birthday party just after Australia’s T20 World Cup campaign was over.
Maxwell then underwent surgery for the same because of which he missed the three-match ODI series against England at home.
Additionally, Maxwell has also revealed that he has lost five kgs of weight ever since the operation.
He is currently wearing a moon boot and is able to walk with the support of crutches. Maxwell was spotted standing near the Shane Warne statue at Melbourne Cricket Ground.
His fans were not too pleased to see him in such a situation and Maxwell has said that his recovery process is slow at the moment.
Maxwell now hopes to regain his fitness in time for the final stages of the Big Bash League 2022-23 season.
I want it to be done and over with quickly. I don’t want to be on cructches 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.
Adding further, he says,
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.
Maxwell positive of making a recovery from the injury
However, Maxwell remains positive and says that he is trying to make as quick a recovery as possible.
The surgeon and the 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.
Concluding, Maxwell says,
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.
