Sports desk. Former Indian wicket-keeper batsman Saba Karim and former Australian spinner Brad Hogg both believe that Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have taken a huge risk by buying Glenn Maxwell for Rs 14.25 crore in the IPL auction. According to Saba and Hogg, Maxwell’s performance has not been very special in the recent past, in which case the bets placed on him by RCB may also backfire. Earlier, Maxwell was bought by Punjab Kings last year for a huge amount of Rs 10.75 but he could not perform anything special in IPL 2020. He was able to score only 108 runs in 13 matches of the previous season, after which the Punjab team released him this year.
Saba K arim, who was the chief selector of the Indian team, described Glenn Maxwell as a match-winning player. However, he said that this smoky batsman has not done anything special in the IPL so far. Saba said, “Nobody can say what Maxwell’s performance will be. RCB have taken this huge risk, maybe their intention behind this is to strengthen their middle order. There is no doubt that Maxwell is a match winner and This is the reason, perhaps even today, there is a competition to buy them in the IPL.
He is a very amazing player, in addition to batting fast, he can also bowl offspin. He is also an exceptional fielder. He is a complete player, but his significance will be proved only when he performs as a match winner. I have not seen him perform like this for any IPL team so far.
