Stuart MacGill, an Australian cricket player, has been charged in a plan to sell drugs.

The 52-year-old man, who played 44 Test matches for Australia, was picked up by police in Sydney on Tuesday.

In 2021, MacGill was said to have been taken away and beaten, which made them start their probe.

The former spinner hasn’t said how she will plead yet, but she has denied being involved in drug sales in the past.

In April 2021, MacGill made news all over the world when he told police that he was attacked and pushed into a car in the Sydney suburb of Cremorne.

He says he was taken to a remote area outside of the city, where he was attacked and threatened with a gun. He was then taken to a third place and let go.

MacGill was hurt in the claimed incident, but he didn’t need to go to the hospital.

In an interview after the claimed kidnapping, MacGill said, “I haven’t done anything wrong,” and police at the time said he was “purely” a victim.

Six people, including the brother of the woman he was with at the time, have been charged because of what happened.

But after a two-year investigation, police have now also charged MacGill with helping to sell a big amount of a drug that is against the law.

Local news outlets say that the claimed deal was for more than $300,000 worth of cocaine.

MacGill was given bail and told to come back to court on October 26.

MacGill was a spin bowler for the national team from 1998 to 2008. At one point, he was named as the second-best bowler in the world, behind his teammate Shane Warne.
