A few weeks before the commencement of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup, star Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell is dealing with a new injury after injuring his ankle during a training session in Durban.

Prior to Australia’s T20I series against South Africa on Wednesday, Maxwell exacerbated his ankle while practising.

Maxwell is anticipated to heal from the ankle issue in time for Australia’s World Cup campaign, but national selector Tony Dodemaide stated that given the 34-year-old’s injury history, which includes the bizarre leg injury he sustained at a friend’s party late last year, no risks will be taken with him.

Maxwell will likely don the Australian uniform once more during Australia’s ODI series against India at the end of the next month, and Dodemaide is optimistic he will be totally healthy for the World Cup.

“We will monitor Glenn’s recovery,” Dodemaide said in reference to Glenn’s availability for the three-match ODI series in India preceding the World Cup.

Matthew Wade has the opportunity to take Maxwell’s place in Australia’s starting lineup now that Maxwell is out. In addition to Josh Inglis and other wicketkeepers, the veteran has been called up for the series against South Africa.

Maxwell is  included  a list of up to seven first-choice players who will not be participating in Australia’s T20I tour of South Africa, including Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood, Cameron Green, and David Warner.

South Africa and Australia will face off in their opening game on Wednesday in Dubai.
