Why didn’t Glenn Maxwell get a run after injury Know MCC rules

Glenn Maxwell Injury AUS vs AFG: Glenn Maxwell scored a brilliant match-winning double century in a thrilling World Cup 2023 match at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Tuesday. Maxwell played a historic inning of 201 runs while chasing Australia’s target of 292 runs against Afghanistan. After 7 wickets fell, Maxwell surprised the Afghanistan bowlers.

He was also injured at that time. Around the age of 150, Maxwell was suffering from cramps, it was difficult for him to even stand at one place. However, he performed brilliantly at the crease. Meanwhile, the physio also took care of him. After this the question arose as to why Maxwell, who was suffering from injury, did not find a runner.

The ICC Executive Committee decided to remove runners for injured batsmen in ODI matches in 2011 because the ICC considers player fitness to be important.” The Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) said that the rules of cricket had not changed, but that this was only a change in the playing conditions for international players, so runners would remain in domestic and recreational cricket.

This decision was criticized at that time. Former Indian cricket team captain Sunil Gavaskar has strongly criticized this. He said, I would also like to suggest that there should be no water for the bowlers on the boundary line. They bowl an over and come to the boundary where energy drinks are waiting for them.

Gavaskar said the ICC should also consider scrapping the drinks break and the concept of alternate fielders if it feels it is not appropriate to have runners in for injured batsmen. There should be no drink break which is usually scheduled after an hour or so. If you are going to create such a situation, there should be no substitute fielder.

Maxwell could have retired hurt but he continued batting. In the end, he remained on the field like a warrior and returned after leading the team to victory.
