new Delhi: Talking about the last few seasons of IPL, the explosive all-rounder of Australia Glenn Maxwell has been very poor, but despite this he is sold for crores of rupees in the auction. Former India team opener Gautam Gambhir has given the reason why Glenn Maxwell is sold for crores of rupees.
Maxwell’s performance deteriorated in IPL-13
Let me tell you that Glenn Maxwell played for Kings XI Punjab in the last season of IPL and his performance was very poor. Punjab was released due to poor performance of Glenn Maxwell. In the IPL auction this year, Royal Challengers Bangalore bought Glenn Maxwell for Rs 14.25 crore, surprising everyone.
Why Maxwell is sold in crores?
In spite of such poor performance, Maxwell got the benefit of crores. Gautam Gambhir explained why Glenn Maxwell is being liked. Gambhir told ESPN Cricinfo, ‘Maxwell has not been a consultant. We cannot do that they do not get freedom to play freely. He got a lot of freedom when he was playing for Delhi.
Gambhir gave this big reason
Gambhir said, ‘Most IPL teams choose Maxwell because they see the X factor in it, but Maxwell’s performance has been nothing but the 2014 IPL season. Maxwell continues to get more money because his performance has been fantastic while playing for the Australia cricket team.
