Star Australia batting all-rounder Glenn Maxwell recently opened up about the impact on his family after his infamous ‘Adelaide Hotel’ incident a couple of weeks ago. After the incident, the Australia skipper Pat Cummins also spoke about it and advised Maxwell to ‘own’ his actions being an adult.
Now, Maxwell himself revealed the entire incident while speaking after his sensational century against West Indies in the second T20I of the three-match series in Adelaide. The blistering batter also named some of his Adelaide trips ‘cursed’.
Here's what Glenn Maxwell said
“I’ve had a few cursed Adelaide trips … so it’s nice to make this a positive one. I think it probably affected my family a little bit more than it affected me. I was back into training, I was still thinking about this T20 series and the New Zealand tour. I was pretty focused on what I had to do,” said Maxwell to Fox Cricket.
“Obviously, that incident was less than ideal with the timing, but I had that week off away from the game. I came back and got back into my running, my gym program, and I felt really good and refreshed once I got back. I just moved on pretty quickly. I was back in training on Monday so I was pretty good. I woke up (that) morning and I just had a funny feeling,” he added later.
Talking about cricket, Maxwell smashed a swashbuckling century in the second T20I against West Indies. He played an unbeaten knock of 120 runs off just 55 balls, with 12 fours and 8 sixes. On the back of his century followed by Tim David's 31 off just 14 balls, Australia posted a massive total of 241 runs for the loss of only 4 wickets in the allotted 20 overs.
While chasing the target, West Indies could score only 207 runs for the loss of 9 wickets in the entire 20 overs; Australia won the match by 34 runs to gain an unassailable lead of 2-0 in the three-match series.
