IPL 2024: 'I'll come back whenever I'm ready’- RCB’s Glenn Maxwell reveals why he has taken a break

Maxwell had withdrawn from RCB;s previous match against SRH.

Glenn Maxwell | BCCI-IPLRoyal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) all-rounder Glenn Maxwell has shed light on why he asked the franchise to not be picked in their recent IPL 2024 game. He also added that he is not yet ready to come back to the field and will do so in some time.

The 35-year-old, who has only scored 32 runs in six innings with an average of 5.33, withdrew from their last match against Sunrisers Hyderabad, citing that the "physical and mental toll probably just wore me down a little bit."

However, he revealed that he is also suffering from a hip strain and is unlikely to feature in RCB's upcoming encounter against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) as well.

"I've actually got a little bit of a hip strain so I've got a few more days off and during recovery. So I've got a little period here where I'm still training, still trying to get myself right. If there is a spot that becomes available, I'll obviously put my hand up and take it,” Maxwell said on ESPN's 'Around the Wicket' show.

Maxwell emphasized that his return to the team is not based on a fixed timeline.

He said: "It's not one of those things where I've set a date that I'll be out for three games then I'll come back whenever I'm ready. That's not how it works. I haven't been at a level that's good enough to warrant a spot on the side this year."

Glenn Maxwell also revealed that he has joined Washington Freedom and will participate in Major League Cricket immediately following the T20 World Cup in the West Indies and USA.
