IPL 2023: Glenn Maxwell Injury: IND vs AUS Test Series – In what could be a huge blow for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), their 11 Crore retainee Glenn Maxwell could miss some games of the IPL 2023 season owing leg injury. The all-rounder has also confirmed he would likely be unfit for the Australia tour of India in February – March. Maxwell, who was eyeing a Test return for the Border Gavaskar Trophy, says there is a high chance of not making it to the 15-member squad owing to leg recovery and match preparation.

IPL 2023: How Glenn Maxwell broke his leg?

It was during his friend’s 50th birthday party that Maxwell broke his leg in an innocuous incident. He was pretending to chase his friend before they both slipped taking four steps. Maxwell’s schoolteacher fell at a very bad angle, which badly damaged the leg.

“One of my mates, who was also one of my schoolteachers, we were laughing about something, and I pretended to chase him off somewhere,” Maxwell said.

“I reckon we both took about three or four steps out there, and both slipped at the same time. I just got my foot stuck a little bit, and he fell, unfortunately at a really bad angle and landed straight on my leg.

IPL 2023: Why Maxwell missing out on a few games could be a killer blow for RCB?

  • Maxwell is RCB’s pillar in the middle order, who can take the game away from the opposition within the blink of an eye.
  • With Faf du Plessis and Virat Kohli playing sheet anchor roles, it is the Australian all-rounder who adds much-needed impetus in the middle order.
  • The RCB star player also chips in with a few vital overs and gives skipper Du Plessis a wicket in the middle phase of the innings.
  • The all-rounder also provides invaluable tips to skipper Faf and Kohli, who form the leadership group.
  • With Maxwell likely missing a few games, RCB will again be back to the drawing board regarding middle-order woes.
  • While they have options like Finn Allen and Mahipal Lomror, no one possesses the experience and match-winning skills of Maxwell yet.
