Glenn Maxwell failed to hit a single six in IPL 2020.
KXIP have already published their list of successful and released players ahead of the 2021 IPL auction, and it was no surprise to see that Glenn Maxwell was released from their pool. Maxwell suffered a terrible run with KXIP for the duration of the IPL 2020. He failed to play with his bat consistently, and even then management continued to support him during games, but this time around it was finally released by the KXIP franchise.
It was a known fact that Maxwell was roped by KXIP at a great price, and the all-rounder failed to justify it. He hasn’t even managed to hit a single six in the 2020 IPL overall, and in the same benchmark former New Zealand all-rounder Scott Styris said the Aussie player is unlikely to report. a large amount in upcoming auctions.
During a discussion on Star Sports Network, Styris was asked if the all-rounder will get any profile takers at auction, to which he said it would be illogical to spend millions of dollars on the 32-year-old.
“The answer is, if someone pays something like that kind of 10 crore, they’ve got rocks in their heads. It’s as simple as that. We all know how good a player he is, and that’s not the point. The talent is there, but the talent has surpassed the actual performances that we have seen from Glenn Maxwell, ”said Styris.
Glenn Maxwell should only be broken around his base price: Styris
The former Kiwi added that Maxwell should be roped up with franchises based on his actual performances in the league and not on his international stature. Maxwell was unable to replicate his heroes in IPL lately compared to its actual caliber. Styris added that there might be teams bidding for him and they should be prepared to take the consequences.
“I think there will be someone who takes a chance on Maxwell, but it should only be a base price. And you hope you hit the lightning in a bottle and you’re lucky and he’s in good shape and somehow manages to knock over what has been a pretty disappointing five or so. six years in the IPL, ”concluded Styris.
