IPL 2021 auction: Glenn Maxwell has been released by the Kings XI Punjab team ahead of the auction of the 14th season of the Indian Premier League 2021.
The veteran Australian team’s performance in the IPL 2020 was very poor. And that is why the Punjab team has taken such a step.
Glenn Maxwell will now be involved in the auction of the mini option to be held on February 18.
However, before this, former cricketer and commentator of the Indian team, Aakash Chopra, has made it clear that Glenn Maxwell will not buy the team of Rajasthan Royals at least.
And they have also explained the reason behind this, so let’s come to that reason. Before this auction, the Rajasthan team had released their captain Steve Smith.
And in his place, India’s young wicketkeeper-batsman Sanju Samson has been appointed as the captain.
Talking to his YouTube channel, Akash Chopra said, this time, foreign players can be targeted by the Rajasthan Royals team.
Aakash Chopra further said that at present, the Rajasthan Royals team has foreign players like Josh Butler, Ben Stokes, and David Miller.
But he needs another foreign batsman whom he wants to feed before David Miller. The same Akash said, in such a situation, the Rajasthan team can include Aaron Finch, Dawid Malan, or Jason Roy from the team.
If he wants players from the England team, then he will go like Dawid Malan or Jason Roy. If the Australian players want the same then they will go to Finch.
I don’t think that the Rajasthan team will buy Glenn Maxwell because it is not the team that will bid for Maxwell.
As you all know, Maxwell’s performance in last year’s IPL was very poor. He could not hit a single six in the 13th season of IPL.
