Watch: Glenn Maxwell hits reverse sweeps in the RCB practice session
The Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell has failed to live up to the expectations in the last season. He failed to perform while representing Punjab Kings in the UAE.
Maxwell has played almost all the games for Punjab, but he did not hit even a single six throughout the season. This stat shows how badly he performed in the last edition of IPL.
The franchise trusted him a lot and went on to buy him for a whopping INR 10.75 crore in the 2020 auction. But, it was the biggest mistake Punjab made ever in the history of IPL.
The cricket fraternity was not happy with the performances of Maxwell. Virender Sehwag was the first to talk about tbe all-rounder. He said 10-crore cheerleader proved costly for the Punjab-based IPL franchise.
Glenn Maxwell smashes reverse sweeps in the practice games:
Ahead of the IPL 2021 auction, the Punjab Kings released the Australian all-rounder. The Virat Kohli-led RCB acquired his services for the massive amount of INR 10.25 crore.
The 32-year-old will be looking to give his best for his new franchise. He was looking in the great touch during the practice session.

The Bangalore-based IPL franchise will play the tournament opener of IPL 2021. They will be up against the defending champions Mumbai Indians on 9th April in Chennai.
On the other hand, Mumbai Indians would look to defend the title and create history. Both Mumbai and Bangalore have faced each other in 27 games. While MI won 17 games, Bangalore won the rest 10 games.
