IPL 2021 Auction: Twitter Goes Berserk As RCB Racks Up Glenn Maxwell For Rs 14.25 Crores

Glenn Maxwell sold to RCB for INR 14.25 crores.

Australian swashbuckling middle-order batsman Glenn Maxwell once again broke the bank at the IPL auction table as a furious bidding war ensued between the likes of Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Maxwell, who had listed himself at the base price of Rs 2 Crore, saw his price blow through the roof after Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals started the bidding war.

Eventually, Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore joined the bid and thus started the back and forth between them to avail the services of the Australian all-rounder.

In the end, it was the Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Banglore, who racked up Glenn Maxwell for a whopping, head spinning, Rs 14.25 Crore.

Maxwell’s bid was outrageous given the fact that he has been a perennial underachiever in the cash-rich league. Barring the 2014 season where he smashed more than 500 runs and the 2017 edition where he scored more than 300 runs, Glenn Maxwell has been a colossal disappointment over the years in the IPL.

He was racked up for Rs 10.75 Crores in the 2019 IPL auction by Kings XI Punjab but he failed to live up to expectations as he couldn’t even hit a single six in the 13 games that he played.

With Glenn Maxwell once again breaking the bank in IPL 2021 Auction, Twitter, as expected, went bonkers.

Here are some of the best reactions after Glenn Maxwell racked up Rs 14.25 Crores in IPL 2021 Auction:
