Glenn Maxwell to miss Australia tour of South Africa to undergo elbow surgery
Australia all-rounder Glenn Maxwell will overlook the tour of South Africa to undergo surgery.
The D’Arcy Short of western Australia will displace Maxwell in the T20I and ODI squads for the six-match effort.
Maxwell is anticipated to be out for between six to eight weeks and must be accessible for your IPL, which begins on.
Maxwell was signed by Kings XI Punjab for #1.15m at a year’s player voucher.
Because taking a break from cricket in October due to emotional health concerns, maxwell hasn’t played for Australia.
Australian selector Trevor Hohns said:”We are disappointed to shed Glenn this near the tour as we were looking forward to welcoming him back to the national side in the 20 and also 50-over formats following his break during the summer.
“Regrettably the pain he’s undergone in the elbow in the latter stages of their BBL (Big Bash League) increased over the weekend and he’ll have surgery immediately to rectify the situation.
“An opportunity has presented itself for D’Arcy and we’re confident he will make the most of whatever opportunities come his way into South Africa.
“Like Glenn, D’Arcy is a inventive, hard-hitting batsman that gives a handy spin-bowling alternative. We have no doubt he’ll make a positive contribution to the group.”
