Australia all-rounder Glenn Maxwell is taking a break from cricket to deal with mental health “difficulties”, governing body Cricket Australia. Australian cricket's new overseer of national teams Ben Oliver admits the game still has a lot to learn about dealing with the mental health of its players, coaches, and staff. Maxwell, the 31 years old cricketer played in the first two matches in the ongoing T20 series against Sri Lanka. He appeared in a good form as he scored a half-century in the first match. After the second match, he was replaced by all-rounder D’Arcy Short. "Glenn Maxwell has been experiencing some difficulties with regards to his mental health. As a result, he will spend a short time away from the game”, team psychologist Michael Lloyd said in a statement. Glenn was proactive in identifying these issues and engaging with support staff.
Australian players currently have the option of reporting mental health problems or spiraling feelings via the wellness apps used to track their physical and mental wellbeing but are also able to discuss their state of mind with coaches, medical staff and team psychologists. "I'm incredibly proud of both Glenn and Nic in feeling as though they could share what they were experiencing and really be open and honest about that. Equally proud in terms of our response to that. The coaching and support staff response and their care and empathy for both Glenn and Nic. And more broadly my view is it's a really complex issue, something that all of society is grappling with and, as a sport, we're part of society. Australia will work collaboratively with Cricket Victoria’s support, said CA’s Executive General Manager of National Teams Ben Oliver. He also added, the well being of the players and staff is paramount and Glenn has their full support. Glenn is a special player and an important part of the Australian cricket family. We hope to see him back on the team.
