SATURDAY NOVEMBER 2 2019 SPORT 53 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA GLENN Maxwell was urged to quit social media by a Melbourne Stars teammate five years ago after a barrage of abuse left the all-rounder shattered. Former Stars captain John Social media hurt Glenn SAM LANDSBERGER Hastings said it was only a matter of time until Maxwell took a break from cricket to deal with his mental health given what he has copped throughout his career. I remember sitting next to him up at the Gabba after a Stars game a few years ago and he said, Have a look at this, Hastings said. It was absolute abuse that he copped and I was like, Mate youve got to get off social media, youve got to stop worrying about this stuff. He takes things very personally and its a real shame this has happened, but hes got a lot of good people around him. Maxwell charged down the Gabba wicket that night but left the ball and was bowled for a golden duck, with footage of a shocked Adam Gilchrist in the commentary box going viral. Maxwell, 31, has 4.6 million fans on Facebook and 1.4 million fans on Twitter. He absorbs plenty of feedback on Twitter, with a lot of it unhealthy. Maxwell has been drafted by Shane Warnes London Spirit to play in The Hundred competition in England next year. While Maxwell will earn $235,000 for the six-week tournament, it will also further eat into a calendar year where he already has a Twenty20 World Cup and is likely to return to the Indian Premier League.
