Melbourne: Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell has decided to take a short break from cricket to deal with his mental health issues.
"Cricket Australia will work collaboratively with Cricket Victoria's support staff to ensure Glenn's well-being and his reintegration into the game. We ask that everyone gives Glenn and his family and friends space; and respects their privacy at this time," CA's Executive General Manager of National Teams Ben Olive said.
"He is a special player and an important part of the Australian cricket family. We hope to see him back in the team during the summer. It is important we look after Glenn and all our players," he added.
Maxwell has played 110 ODIs, 61 T20Is and 7 Tests for Australia.
The Australia squad for the final T20I against Sri Lanka: Aaron Finch (c), Sean Abbott, Ashton Agar, Alex Carey, Pat Cummins, Ben McDermott, Kane Richardson, D'Arcy Short, Steve Smith, Billy Stanlake, Mitchell Starc, Ashton Turner, David Warner, Adam Zampa. The side will take on Sri Lanka in the final T20I on Friday.
