Nic Maddinson taking break from cricket 'due to personal reasons', unavailable for New South Wales selection

Cricket Australia has announced Test batsman Nic Maddinson is taking an indefinite break from the game because of personal reasons.

Maddinson made his Test debut against South Africa in Adelaide last November, but was dropped later in the summer after averaging just 6.75 with the bat over three matches.

He will miss New South Wales' Sheffield Shield match against Queensland starting Thursday and will remain unavailable for selection.

"Cricket Australia and Cricket NSW advises that Australian and NSW batsman Nic Maddinson will not be available for selection due to personal reasons, until further notice," the two bodies said in a joint statement.

Maddinson, 25, was dismissed for a duck in his Test debut, batting at six, before registering scores of 1, 4 and 22 in the opening two Tests of the Pakistan series.

Unlike Peter Handscomb and Matt Renshaw, who have maintained their places in the Test squad, Maddinson was dropped after three Tests for all-rounder Hilton Cartwright.



The left-hander was unable to recapture form in the Big Bash League, failing to register a significant score for Sydney Sixers in seven matches.

Maddinson made his Test debut after averaging 38 from 58 first-class matches for the Blues, with two centuries and an 86 in the 2016/17 Sheffield Shield season.
