IPL 2021: Glenn Maxwell Makes Big Statement In RCB Jersey At Start of Season

How the fortunes change by just a change in jersey! That is exactly what has happened with the maverick Australian batsman – Glenn Maxwell between IPL 2020 and IPL 2021. A change in franchise from Punjab Kings to Royal Challengers Bangalore seems to have worked wonders for the destructive middle-order batsman as he hammered his first fifty in the IPL in five years. Maxwell’s brilliant 59 off 41 deliveries from number 4 on a slow and spinner friendly Chepauk wicket was worth its weight in gold and in the final analysis the innings that made the difference between the two sides today as RCB registered a splendid six-runs win over SRH.

IPL 2021: Glenn Maxwell Ends Fifty Drought After 3 Barren Seasons

Maxwell had again scored at a rate higher than the match norm during his 28-ball 39 against Mumbai Indians also at Chennai in the season opener. The Australian has already blasted 5 sixes in the tournament. This is in sharp contrast to his numbers in the UAE in IPL 2020 where he did not hit a single maximum in the entire competition and could muster just 108 runs in 13 matches at a poor strike rate of 101.88 with no fifties. It was a shocking performance by one of the most destructive batsmen in international cricket.

Bought by RCB for a sum of INR 14.25 crore at the mini-auction in February, Maxwell has started the season living up to his name and billing! If he continues in the same vain 2021 could just be the year for Glenn Maxwell. And the RCB!
