Royal Challengers Bangalore made the biggest move at the auction table paying 14.25 crores crores for the Australian all-rounder Glen Maxwell. Various franchisees were at a bidding war for the Australian all-rounder with the Virat Kohli led-side finally roping in the Big Show at a hefty price.
The Australian all-rounder meanwhile, opened up on playing under Virat Kohli at the RCB. Maxwell has played for three teams in the IPL so far and Bangalore will be his fourth franchise. He has played for Mumbai Indians, Kings XI Punjab, and Delhi Capitals in the past.
“I get along with Virat pretty well. It’ll be certainly nice to work under Virat and will certainly enjoy batting with him – that’s for sure. It will be awesome to work with him, and he’s always been really helpful to me along the journey. Whenever I’ve caught up with him, he’s been brilliant. So to be able to work with him first hand will be pretty cool,” Maxwell said.
Glenn Maxwell meanwhile, has scored 1505 runs to his name in 82 IPL matches at an average of 22.13 and a strike rate of over 150.
