The 13th edition of Indian Premier League (IPL) saw Mumbai Indians emerge victorious beating Delhi Capitals in the summit clash. Since then, a lot of things have been spoken over and recently former India opener Virender Sehwag picked the flops of IPL 2020. In doing so, he slammed Kings XI Punjab all-rounder Glenn Maxwell.
Incidentally, Sehwag has analysing matches and performances of the players throughout the cash-rich league. In an interesting video, Virender Sehwag in his usual style, come with the 5 flops of the season. Sehwag, speaking in the video ‘Viru Ki Baithak’, said that the players he is including in the list are not in any particular order.
In his list, the former India opener included Royal Challengers Bangalore’s Aaron Finch, Kings XI Punjab’s Glenn Maxwell, Kolkata Knight Riders’ Andre Russell, Chennai Super Kings’ Shane Watson and RCB’s Dale Steyn.
“Aaron Finch, I gave him my name as a nickname, thinking he would be Viru to Thakur Kohli. Instead, it looks like the Bangalore curse affected him badly and the engine of his batting stalled this season,” Sehwag said.
Virender Sehwag slams Glenn Maxwell
Speaking further, Virender Sehwag slammed all-rounder Glenn Maxwell calling his a 10-crore cheerleader. The Australia all-rounder had a forgettable season managing only 103 runs from 13 innings along with picking only three wickets.
“Glenn Maxwell. This 10 crore cheerleader proved very costly for Punjab. His IPL routine for the last few years has been of shirking from work but this season he broke that record as well. This is what you call a highly paid vacation,” Virender Sehwag added.
In conclusion, Virender Sehwag picked Royal Challengers Bangalore’s veteran fast bowler Dale Steyn to conclude the list. The Proteas pacer managed to scalp only one wicket from three matches and following that the management had to make him sit out owing to poor form.
“Dale Steyn. There was a time when everyone was afraid of the bullets from the ‘Steyn Gun’ but this season instead of the ‘Steyn Gun’ we got a homemade pipe gun. I could not believe my eyes seeing him getting hit but one thing became clear that we are unlikely to find a buyer for him now in the IPL market,” Sehwag further added.
