The 34-year-old Australia National Cricket Team star batting all-rounder Glenn Maxwell recently opened up on his freak leg accident that has ruled him out of action for at least three months.

Maxwell broke his left leg in a freak accident after the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 and underwent successful surgery. The accident took place during a birthday party in Melbourne.

Glenn Maxwell had revealed that his former schoolteacher had fallen on his leg when they both slipped over on a patch of wet artificial grass in their friend’s small backyard and it resulted in him suffering a big fracture to his fibula.

Speaking to Fox Sports on the sidelines of the Boxing Day BBL match between the Melbourne Stars and the Sydney Sixers, Glenn Maxwell revealed that he was not very far away from losing his foot, which could have ended his cricket career.

“I probably wasn’t that far off losing my foot which was pretty scary. To be able to be out the other side (now) and starting to walk again, it’s weird you sort of have to teach yourself how to walk,” he said.

Glenn Maxwell further revealed that he has slowly and steadily started to walk around a bit more comfortably. He was also hopeful of getting rid of the crutches pretty soon. He said:

“I’m starting to walk around a little bit more comfortable. Hopefully get rid of the crutches in a couple of days. Things are starting to look up.”

He further spoke about receiving “unbelievable support” from his wife during the tough phase. The all-rounder said:

“(Wife Vini) has been an unbelievable support for me – basically my nurse for a month and a half taking care of me. (She’s) really helped me get through the last little bit.”

Glenn Maxwell tied the knot with long-time partner Vini Raman in March 2022. The couple got married in Australia but later travelled to Chennai to conduct Indian wedding rituals as Vini is of Indian origin.
