Prolific Australia all-rounder Glenn Maxwell was obstructed from participation in the RCB clash against RR in the IPL 2022 at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on Tuesday due to the Cricket Australia clause. 

Maxwell, who recently tied the knot with his partner, in Indian-style in Chennai started training with Bangalore franchise for the IPL 2022 after the completion of his mandatory three-day quarantine but could not be a part of the side.

IPL 2022: What is the Cricket Australia clause for their players? 

Australia recently completed the limited-overs away series against Pakistan. The Cricket Australia clause abstains all the Australian cricketers from participating in the lucrative tournament before April 6. 

It is, thus, understood that Maxwell will be available for selection in the RCB set-up in the match on April 9 against five-time champions Mumbai Indians. 

“It’s pretty clear from Cricket Australia’s point of view that no contracted players are available before the 6th of April. So, regardless of when they arrive here, they can’t play before the 6th of April,” Mike Hesson said in a video shared on RCB’s official twitter page.

“We have been well aware of that as every other side. We have planned for that. Maxi (Maxwell) will be with us and available from the 9th.”

Australia fast bowler Pat Cummins and limited-overs captain Aaron Finch will also be ready to avail their services for KKR from Wednesday while Mitchell Marsh has joined the Delhi Capitals camp to continue recovery from his hip injury.
