The World Cup star was with with other Australian and West Indian players watching former cricketer Brett Lee’s band, Six and Out, at The Governor Hindmarsh hotel when the incident occurred.

Reports say the all-rounder was ‘dehydrated’ and passed out at the venue after ‘a few beers in the sun’.

On Tuesday, The Daily Telegraph reported that several sources with connections to the Australian team say that ‘Maxwell’s judgement with alcohol has been an issue in team environments for several years’.

The 35-year-old has been involved in several bizarre incidents over recent years that have resulted in injuries.

Maxwell missed Australia’s group game against England in the World Cup last year due to a injury that left him concussed, reportedly as the result of a mishap involving a golf cart.

Sources say Maxwell had had a few beers when the accident happened, but was not intoxicated.

Maxwell also broke his leg in November of 2022 when he slipped over at a friend’s 50th birthday party.

The incident cost him a spot in Australia’s Test squad to tour India. He was also forced out of the entire BBL that season with the Melbourne Stars.

On Tuesday, Clarke admitted that Maxwell’s recent incident in Adelaide is concerning. 

‘To have to be put into an ambulance. That makes me nervous,’ he said.

‘With these sort of things, with off-field stuff. I like to go, ‘Benefit of the doubt and innocent until proven guilty’.

‘One thing I know, Cricket Australia will get to the bottom of it. These days there’s cameras, there’s people. So the truth will be told.

‘The other thing we need to do is making sure he’s OK. He didn’t end up spending the night there (in hospital). I can’t think of a time where I’ve had to call an ambulance or an ambulance had to be called for me, no matter how drunk I was.

‘So I’m worried is there more to this and I just hope he’s OK first and foremost.’

CA said on Monday that Maxwell has been ‘rested’ from the ODI series against West Indies starting on February 2 but that it is unrelated to his hospitalisation.

Maxwell and teammate Jhye Richardson, who was uninjured, have been replaced by young guns Jake Fraser-McGurk and Xavier Bartlett.
