Australian batting wagon Glenn MaxwellUnforgettable Indian Premier League 2020 (IPL) did not seem to matter at the auction in 2021, as the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) eventually signed it for Rs 14.25 kroner. On Monday, RCB posted a video on Twitter showing them, led by cricket operations director Mike Hesson, planning their bid for Maxwell.
Hesson explained in the video why RCB desperately wanted to sign Maxwell, regardless of his form last season. Maxwell had only 108 runs for 13 assists with an average of 15.
“The reason we like him is that he is the most dangerous in over 10-15. Since 2014 in the middle, his average level is 28 with a stroke rate of 161.5. That would make us wonderful,” he says. Hesson in the video.
“And it could be a bowling option. We need someone in the top six who can buy 3-4 overs, but Maxwell can take two. Those numbers are exceptional,” he said.
The RCB think tank predicts that the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will compete with them for Maxwell, and Hesson called the three-time champions “the only threat.” It turned out that a bidding war between RCB and CSK led to Maxwell’s price jumping to nearly 15 rupees. The two teams fought each other after Maxwell’s price jumped Rs 4.4 crores.
