Former Indian batsman Virender Sehwag has once again put Glenn Maxwell on a poor run in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Maxwell, who failed to make a single ring for Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) during IPL 2020, seemed to be the top-order batsman for Australia in the limited overs series against India. Maxwell also played a number of important changes and bowls for the hosts in the ODI and T20 series against India.
Due to Glenn Maxwell’s poor performance in the IPL, Sehwag is more serious about golf than cricket during the IPL. Sehwag has said that his attitude changes when he plays for Australia. Speaking on the official India vs Australia series, Sehwag said, “He (Maxwell) does not take any pressure (in the IPL). It’s just fun. He will do everything in the match-match, encourage the players, walk, dance, but not make runs. ”
The former Indian batsman said during a discussion on Sony Sports Network, “I never felt that he was serious about the game. When it comes to IPL he is more serious about his golf than cricket, because if you are serious, performance is visible. Sehwag, a former KXIP mentor who worked with Maxwell during his tenure in the IPL franchise, said the Australian star’s attitude changes when he plays for his country, as he knows he can be ruled out after some bad matches unlike the IPL, where he performed poorly. Yet large salaries are paid.
Sehwag said, “When he plays for Australia, his attitude changes completely. When he goes to Australia he knows that if he has two or three bad shifts he will be excluded from the Australian team and it will be difficult to come back, but there is no fear in the IPL. Even if you are not in the playing XI, you will get 1.5 1.5 million. It is possible to get a 20 or 30 percent discount when you do not participate. So if not 15 lakh then he will get 10 lakh. So those free money are going into the pocket. ”
Kangaroos all-rounder Glenn Maxwell played a sharp innings of 54 off 36 balls in the final T20I match against India on Tuesday, on which Australia scored a big score and won the match by 12 runs. Maxwell previously played 13 matches for KXIP in IPL 2020. They could not score a single six, leaving a half-century in those matches. He was able to score 108 runs throughout the tournament.
