Glenn Maxwell's manager Ben Tippet revealed that the all-rounder is a 'little embarrassed' by the drunken incident on Friday in Adelaide that led to him being hospitalized. According to The Sydney Morning Herald, Maxwell was taken to hospital in an ambulance after falling sick and losing consciousness, with Cricket Australia trying to determine whether he suffered a concussion.

Maxwell reportedly spent some time with chief selector George Bailey and head coach Andrew McDonald to relay his version of the events. The selectors had rested the Victorian from the ODI series against the West Indies, but will start his preparation for the T20 series, keeping in mind the World Cup in June.

Speaking to The Sydney Morning Herald, Tippet said:

"Glenn is a little embarrassed by the whole thing. He was a bit sore and sorry on Saturday, but he’s back in Melbourne and resumed training yesterday. He’s not under investigation by Cricket Australia."

"Any decision you make you’ve got to own it" - Pat Cummins

Pat Cummins, who spoke to reporters on Tuesday ahead of the 2nd Test against the West Indies, addressed the incident, saying that adults must take responsibility of themselves in such cases. As quoted by Perth Now, Cummins said:

"Potentially, I think only ‘Maxy’ can answer that one. I was there at The Gov for the concert but I left pretty early – I knew he was in town but I didn’t cross paths with Maxy at all. In terms of this incident, he wasn’t on tour with Australia, he was over there for a private event, so he wasn’t with the cricket team, so it is a little bit different, but absolutely, any decision you make you’ve got to own it and be comfortable with it."

Australia retained the Frank Worrell Trophy with a ten-wicket win in Adelaide.
