Former India captain Virender Sehwag couldn’t stop himself from reacting with a funny gif after Royal Challengers Bangalore spent a fortune on getting Australia’s Glenn Maxwell in the ongoing IPL 2021 auction in Chennai.
Glenn Maxwell didn’t have a very good IPL 2020 where he played for the Punjab Kings franchise and made 108 runs in 13 matches with a strike-rate of just over 100. He also couldn’t manage to hit a single six in the tournament and was criticized for his performance, given that he was bought for INR 10.75 Cr and he just didn’t justify the price tag.
He had also pulled out of IPL 2019 in order to prepare for the World Cup in England and also eyed a return to the Australian Test team. But his exploits against England in the ODI and T20I series just before the IPL 2020 auction led to him getting that huge amount from PBKS.
Virender Sehwag’s Funny Reaction To Glenn Maxwell Getting INR 14.25 Cr Bid From Royal Challengers Bangalore
When Glenn Maxwell’s name came up for bidding in the IPL 2021 auction, two franchises in Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore went at it with them raising the bids with alarming speed. Despite the fact the bids went past the 10 crore mark, the bidding didn’t seem to slow down.
RCB had a deeper purse than CSK and that was the only thing that stopped the bidding from going even higher. Maxwell was finally pocketed by Royal Challengers Bangalore for a massive INR 14.25 Crores, which was a lot more for what he was paid by Punjab Kings last season.
Glenn Maxwell will be joining forces with Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers which can be one of the most explosive batting lineups in the upcoming IPL 2021 season. Even the Twitterverse was amazed at the amount of money RCB paid to the Australian all-rounder, who has a huge reputation in the T20 format, but his recent form has not been that good to justify the interest and money he got.
Indian captain Virender Sehwag decide to use an extremely funny gif to react to Glenn Maxwell getting that huge INR 14.25 Crores from Royal Challengers Bangalore.
