Australian all rounder Glenn Maxwell has today mounted big in the auction table. The aggressive right handed batsman will now be seen playing under Virat Kohli. Though the critics of the man had written him off, but his legacy in the shortest format of the game has overshadowed his present.
The southern derby, RCB and CSK were competing to attain the big man on their respective team. However at last MS Dhoni’s team had to give up infront adamant Virat Kohli’s Team. Maxwell was sold to RCB for a whopping amount of INR 14.25 Crore.
Seeing his performance in the past season, no one would have expected that tems will go after Glenn in this way. In IPL 2020, Glenn scored just 108 runs in 13 matches. The all rounder at many instances failed to take the team across the finish line. His performance dipped in such manner that the team management of KXIP lost confidence on him at the later phase of the tournament.
This is not the first time that Maxwell has got such a big bid. In 2020, KXIP signed Glenn for 10.25. Cr While in 2018, Delhi Daredevils bided for Glenn Maxwell for 9 Crore. Every year before going into the auction table, people criticize him and every time Glenn comes out to be the winner.
Before the auction Glenn Maxwell had expressed his desire to play under Virat Kohli and with players like Ab De Villiers. He said,.” I get along with Virat pretty well. It’ll be certainly nice to work under Virat and will certainly enjoy batting with him – that’s for sure,” Maxwell said.
“It will be awesome to work with him, and he’s always been really helpful to me along the journey. Whenever I’ve caught up with him, he’s been brilliant. So to be able to work with him first hand will be pretty cool,” he added.
The likes of Virat Kohli, Ab De Villiers, Glenn Maxwell and Yuzvendra Chahal will certainly be a dream to be witnessed. It would be interesting to see, whether Glenn Maxwell brings luck to RCB.
