In the 14th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL), many will be eyeing the performance of Glenn Maxwell, who has been bought by Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) for Rs 14.25 crore this year. For Maxwell, the previous IPL season was very bad and he was not able to hit a six for Kings XI Punjab (now Punjab Kings), after which he was released by this franchise team. On joining RCB, Maxwell said it was his old dream to play in a team with Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers.
Apart from this, Maxwell has said that constantly being a part of the bio bubble can be like a nightmare and cricketers are still living a very difficult lifestyle. Maxwell has also taken a break from cricket due to mental health, admitting that keeping pace with such a lifestyle in the midst of the Kovid-19 epidemic has certainly affected players across the world. Maxwell said, ‘It is very difficult (living in the bio bubble) … You are kept with people coming from outside the bio bubble and you get caught up in this never ending nightmare where you have only one daily Live a kind of life. ‘
He said, ‘You almost forget how normal talk is done with the outside world. This can be quite difficult mentally and a very big challenge. But it is fantastic to play again and do your work and entertain people. But still this lifestyle is very strong. On joining the RCB team, Maxwell said, ‘It was an old dream (playing with Kohli and de Villiers). Of course I know him very well off the field, have played against him a lot, but I am getting a chance to play in the same team with him.
