Maxwell out of IPL

Glenn Maxwell on Tuesday became the fifth Australian to pull out of the Indian Premier League (IPL), but his injury is unlikely to keep him out of an upcoming West Indies tour.

The hard-hitting batsman suffered a strain in his left abdomen playing for the Kings XI Punjab and is returning home as a precaution.

Australia team physiotherapist David Beakley said it did not appear serious enough to prevent him playing in the West Indies tri-series, which Australia open in Guyana on June 6 against South Africa.

"From the information we have so far, the injury doesn't appear to be something that will prevent Glenn from participating in this tour," he said.

“But we are keen to give him the necessary time to recover before departing to the West Indies at the end of this month."
