If the opening match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and the Indians of Mumbai is the first sign of things to be followed in IPL 2021, it looks like Glenn Maxwell will have an unforgettable campaign. The Australian star has failed to meet expectations over the past few years for the IPL. He scored 552 runs and helped the Punjab Kings reach the finals for the first time.
But since then, the tough batsman has struggled to get into the IPL. Last year, Maxwell endured his worst season in the IPL as he scored only 108 runs in 13 games. The right-hander failed to hit one of the six during the entire race. But despite his poor campaigns in recent years, the RCB decided to buy him a sum of INR 14.25 crores at this year’s auction and Maxwell started the season on a promising note.
He has not scored a single one in the IPL 2020, he has scored one in 16 games against Mumbai. After initially monitoring that he saw him get 18 runs off 15 balls, Maxwell broke the chains with 600 wickets outside the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. It has been a tossed delivery from Krunal Pandya and Maxwell did not hesitate to go down the aisle before launching the six big ones.
