Glenn Maxwell

The IPL 2021 auction saw RCB sign Glenn Maxwell for a fee of Rs 14.25 cr. There was a lot of uproars and some potential criticism for the Royal Challengers Bangalore to spend such a big amount. The fans had not seen him perform well in the IPL for years now. He had failed to impress for the Kings XI Punjab and the hype was over.

However, the level of performances put up by Glenn Maxwell at the international level has been different. He has been doing well for Australia and that is why there has been more criticism from the fans. His form seems to drop off when he comes to play in India, especially the IPL. This is not something that the fans of the franchises he plays for really like.

The Video Of The Gorgeous Six Hit By Glenn Maxwell That Went Viral 

With that being said, he once again batted against New Zealand in the third T20. Australia managed to score 208 in the first innings and win the game rather easily. It was Glenn Maxwell, who scored 70 off 31 balls.

Keeping that in mind, there was a brilliant pull-shot that he hit. It went for six and there was some damage done. Not just to the bowlers’ mentality but to the stadium property as well.

Below is the video of the shot by Glenn Maxwell that got the fans really talking on Social Media platforms and went viral-

 

A brilliant shot to say the least. It was hit off the bowling of James Neesham, who was his former team-mate in the Kings XI Punjab (now known as Punjab Kings). Glenn Maxwell was one of the key players in this batting performance. Hopefully, after his drop in form, he can now get back to form. He was a destroyer with the bat and it will be good to see him firing.

What Next For The Aussie All-Rounder Ahead Of The IPL 2021 Tournament And The T20 World Cup 2021?

This year is really a crucial one. There are two major T20 competitions coming up. One is surely the Indian Premier League season. After a poor IPL 2020, Glenn Maxwell will want to do well in the IPL 2021 tournament. It could have long-term repercussions on his overall career now.

The reason for that is the fact that he has been rather poor in the tournament. On the other hand, there will be a couple of new teams added next year. With that being said, the new franchises could offer him more money or a better deal. That is if he fails to perform for the RCB this term.

Further, there will be the T20 World Cup at the end of the year. That will be another crucial international trophy. As per the current plan, it will be held in India is as well. The players and team management know the importance of this competition. With that being said, the stars like Glenn Maxwell will want to have a solid IPL 2021 too. Let’s wait and watch what happens now!!
