Allrounder Glenn Maxwell has been given the all clear after he was struck in the neck by a local net bowler during a training session at Lord's today.
Quick Single: Champions Trophy preview: Australia
Maxwell was batting in the middle net at the Lord's training facility when he was hit, before he slowly lowered himself into a crouch position to compose himself as several teammates, the bowler and team doctor Peter Brukner moved into the net to check on his welfare.
The Victorian was wearing a helmet at the time.
He eventually walked out of the net along with Dr Brukner, who assessed him for a few minutes before the pair left the training area for the dressing rooms.
Brukner's assessment focused on Maxwell's jaw and the top of his neck, indicating that's where the right-hander was struck.
It was later confirmed that Maxwell hadn't suffered any injury but was icing the blow in the rooms.
"He took a knock to the neck and he is getting some ice," skipper Steve Smith said after training. "I'm sure he will be okay."
In a lengthy training session at the home of cricket, Matthew Wade was also struck on the helmet by Pat Cummins a few minutes later, but the keeper-batsman was OK and continued batting.
