Glenn Maxwell’s IPL deal price 14.25 crores with Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) is ‘surprising’ as a result of he had been launched by Kings XI Punjab after the sooner season, his Australian teammate David Warner mentioned on air.
Australia’s Test contingent is just not concerned within the ongoing T20I collection vs New Zealand due to the tour of South Africa — which has since been cancelled — and so Warner was an skilled commentator for Fox Cricket throughout Monday’s collection opener.
“Not a bad result in the IPL auction for the ‘Big Show’ either,” Warner mentioned within the commentary field
“Considering his last IPL season,” mentioned Mark Waugh, who was alongside Warner.

“It’s surprising, you get let go from your franchise and you get a lot more after being released,” Warner then joked.
Maxwell’s final IPL marketing campaign was disastrous, as he made simply 108 runs at 15.42, with a strike fee of 101.88, and wasn’t retained by Kings XI Punjab.
However, on the IPL 2021 public sale held final week, Maxwell was one of the costly picks. Chennai Super Kings and RCB began an intense bidding struggle for Maxwell, which battle was received by RCB at 14.25 crore.
Warner, who has been retained by Sunrisers Hyderabad, mentioned, “We know what he’s (Maxwell) capable of, and I’m sure there’s a bit of expectation but I’m sure he’ll deliver.”
