Maxwell’s performance deteriorated in IPL-13
Let me tell you that Glenn Maxwell played for Kings XI Punjab in the last season of the IPL and his performance was very poor. Punjab was released due to Glenn Maxwell’s poor performance. In this year’s IPL auction, Royal Challengers Bangalore bought Glenn Maxwell for Rs 14.25 crore, surprising everyone.
Why is Maxwell being sold for crores?
Despite such poor performance, Maxwell enjoyed crores. Gautam Gambhir explained why Glenn Maxwell was valued. Gambhir told ESPN Cricinfo: “Maxwell was not a consultant. We can’t make them not get the freedom to play freely. He had a lot of freedom when he played for Delhi.
Gambhir gave this great reason
Gambhir said: “Most of the IPL teams choose Maxwell because they see it as the X factor, but Maxwell’s performance was nothing other than the 2014 IPL season. Maxwell continues to make more money because that his performance was fantastic while playing for the Australian cricket team.
