"You have got to make your own decisions" - Pat Cummins

“We're all adults, been part of night outings, you have got to make your own decisions. I suppose in this actual incident, he was not on tour with the Australians, he was over there for a private event, and he was not with the cricket team. So, it is a little bit different. Any decision that you make, you have got to own it and be comfortable with it,” said Pat Cummins during the pre-match press conference ahead of the second Test against West Indies.

Earlier, Cricket Australia stated in the same regard and cleared their stance over the incident.

“Cricket Australia is aware of an incident involving Glenn Maxwell in Adelaide at the weekend and is seeking further information,” said CA in an official statement they released in the aftermath of this incident.
