London: Australia all-rounder Glenn Maxwell has pulled out of The Hundred Cricket Tournament. The Hundred is to be held from July 21 to August 21 in which many star players from across the world are expected to participate. Maxwell signed a £100,000 deal with the London Spirit. Although the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) is yet to announce Maxwell’s exit, the team’s head coach and former Australian spinner Shane Warne has confirmed it.
Maxwell also pulled out of West Indies and Bangladesh tour
Maxwell had earlier pulled out of the Australian team’s tour of the Windies and Bangladesh. Warne told The Fox Cricket, ‘Unfortunately Maxwell has withdrawn from The Hundred. We were very excited to have him in the team. We know he is a match winner. However, he has now moved out and we have replaced him with Josh Inglis of Western Australia.
Warner and Stoinis also withdrew
Earlier, Australia’s David Warner and Marcus Stoinis also pulled out of the tournament. Warner and Stoinis signed deals with the Southern Brave franchise for £100,000 and £80,000 respectively.
South African wicket-keeper batsman Quinton de Kock and New Zealand opener Devon Conway have been signed by Southern Brave as replacements for Warner and Stoinis. South African fast bowler Kagiso Rabada has also pulled out of the tournament.
