New Delhi: Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) bought Australian star batsman Glenn Maxwell (Glenn Maxwell) for Rs 14.25 crore in the auction before this year’s Indian Premier League (IPL). Coach Mike Hewson has given the answer to why RCB bought Maxwell, which is often sold in expensive prices even after the average performance in IPL, by paying such a huge amount.
‘Maxwell will give everyone a chance to play freely’
RCB cricket director Mike Hesson believes that Glenn Maxwell’s aggressive batting in the middle and last overs will prove to be very useful for his team and this will allow big players to play freely. Hessen said at the virtual press conference, ‘He is fantastic and we need him in the middle overs. He has a lot of experience.
Maxwell can win matches on his own
Mike Hesson said, ‘When in form, he can win matches on his own. We have to make full use of his ability. We are looking at how he can do it. I will talk to her and tell her about her role. He has talent and experience and will also be a part of the leadership group.
Virat Kohli will start the innings
Talking about captain Virat Kohli, Hesson said that he is very happy with Kohli’s current form and he will start the innings this season. He said, ‘He will enter the top order this time and he is also in excellent form. He performed brilliantly in the T20 series against England and it is expected that he will continue this rhythm.
