Maxwell tested positive in a quick antigen test after his team’s loss to the Melbourne Renegades on Monday night.
According to the Melbourne Stars, Australian allrounder Glenn Maxwell has tested positive for Covid-19. The Stars captain conducted a rapid antigen test after his team’s loss to the Melbourne Renegades on Monday night, which came up positive. He’s been put in isolation until the results of a PCR test are awaited.
Maxwell is the latest player to get the infection in the Stars dugout, which has now infected 12 other players and eight staff members. Owing to the unavailability of some of their normal first-team members due to the illness, the Stars were forced to field a depleted team for their final two games.
Despite the virus’s doom and gloom, the Stars’ good news is that around ten players, including Adam Zampa, Marcus Stoinis, and Nathan Coulter-Nile, will be released from their seven-day isolation period for contracting the virus in the coming days and will be available for the Stars’ next match, against the Adelaide Strikers, on Friday.
