Glenn Maxwell has decided to take a break from cricket, citing mental health issues.

Cricket Australia Team Psychologist Dr Michael Lloyd said: “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.

“Glenn was proactive in identifying these issues and engaging with support staff.”

Executive General Manager of National Teams Ben Oliver said: “The wellbeing of our players and staff is paramount. Glenn has our full support.

“Cricket Australia will work collaboratively with Cricket Victoria’s support staff to ensure Glenn’s wellbeing 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.

“He’s 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’s important we look after Glenn and all our players.”

He has been replaced in Australia’s T20I squad by D’Arcy Short.

Australia coach Justin Langer will front media on Friday afternoon.
