Glenn Maxwell IPL Career
Maxwell became the most expensive player in the 2013 IPL auctions when the eventual champions Mumbai Indians bought him for $1 million US (INR 53,685,500). Although, he played just 3 matches for them and scored 36 runs. Therefore, they did not retain the Australian for the next edition.
He then moved to Kings XI Punjab after being bought by them for INR 6 crores. It worked wonders for the side as he became their highest run-getter in the tournament and also the third-highest overall. He amassed 552 runs in 16 matches at a strike rate of 136 including 5 fifties. He also picked a wicket in the tournament.
In IPL 2015, he looked a pale shadow of the 2014 IPL Maxwell, as he could manage only 145 runs in 11 matches and picked up only 2 wickets. Two years later, in 2017, he took over the captaincy of Kings XI.
With responsibility, he performed better as he scored 310 runs in 14 games at a strike rate of 173 and also picked 7 wickets for the team. Although, he missed out on scoring in a lot of games. Now he is shifted in Royal Challengers Bangalore.
