Before the IPL auction, all the teams did not retain some players and let them go to the auction. Many big players surprised everyone by not keeping their teams and one of them was also named Glenn Maxwell. Maxwell was joined by the Punjab team at a huge price in the last auction but this batsman was included in the list of the worst performing players in IPL 2020. (IPL 2021 Auction)
Maxwell scored just 108 runs in 13 matches last season and could not score a single half-century. The Punjab team kept their trust throughout the season but Maxwell was a complete flop. Due to his extremely poor performance, Maxwell was not named in the list of Witness players released by Kings XI Punjab.
Apart from Maxwell, Punjab has also released many more players. After release, Maxwell will once again be a topic of discussion in the auction as many of the teams would like to include him in their team recently due to the way he has batted in T20 against India and then in Big bash.
In this article, we are going to tell about the 3 teams that need a batsman like Maxwell in the middle order, and in the auction, they can bet on this player.
#3. Delhi Capitals
The Delhi Capitals team, which has reached the finals last season, has great options as Indian batsmen. Before this season, the team has also released many players and would like to remove any shortcomings that were left last season. Delhi has great players in the top order but they do not have any fast-scoring batsman in the middle order. Hetmyer, who was in the team, failed to score fast last season. In such a situation, the Delhi team can buy Maxwell in the auction.
#2. Royal Challengers Bangalore
Royal Challengers Bangalore, captained by Virat Kohli, are still looking for their first title and the team makes some changes before each season but has not been successful so far. RCB has also released some non-performing players last year, including several big names. There are many other players including Finch, Morris, and Umesh Yadav.
The batting of this team is good in top order but there is no experienced batsman to use the last overs. Maxwell can be the solution to this RCB problem. Maxwell has a lot of experience in the IPL and the Bangalore ground can be quite rewarding. (IPL 2021 Auction)
#1. Chennai Super Kings
The Chennai Super Kings captained by MS Dhoni, had a very disappointing last season. None of the team’s batsmen, including captain Dhoni, managed to score runs consistently. Apart from this, the team missed many batsmen who could score fast runs in many matches. Maxwell will be an important player for Chennai in the auction, as the way Maxwell bats can solve Chennai’s problems to a large extent.
