Australian all-rounder, Glenn Maxwell has requested the cricket board to give him some time off from cricket to overcome his mental health concerns.
Cricket Australia Team Psychologist, Dr. Michael Lloyd has said that the hard-hitting batsman will take a short break from cricket.
Glenn’s been experiencing difficulties with regards to his mental health. As a result, he’ll spend a short time away from cricket. Glenn was proactive in identifying these issues and engaging with support staff.
Maxwell was a part of the Australia team for the first two T20Is against Sri Lanka, however, he will no longer be available for the last match of the series.
JUST IN: Glenn Maxwell will take a break from cricket.
All the best, Maxi ❤

In addition, he will also not feature in the upcoming T20I series against the world number 1 Pakistan which starts from 3rd November.
Australian coach, Justin Langer has backed the star to come out of the emotional stress soon.
Behind the mask of the great entertainer and the great talent and the great team man and everything we see publicly, a lot of these guys are human and they’re hurting a bit. Hopefully, he’s going to be fine.
The cricketing fraternity in Australia and from across the world are wishing him luck and hoping for a speedy recovery.
