In the 13th season of the Indian Premier League, the team whose bat is speaking fiercely has proved to be the most expensive player of the same team. The bat of Glenn Maxwell, the stormy batsman who landed in the tournament with great stature and name, has remained silent till now. In the 9 matches played so far, this batsman has not hit a single six and is included in the list of flop batsmen.
Kings XI Punjab had claimed a huge amount of money in this auction of Australia in the auction last year. Maxwell was joined by the Punjab team with a bid of 10.75 crores. Earlier too in 2014, he had done very well for this team. In such a situation, the team was expected to perform better this time too, but Maxwell has disappointed everyone.
10.75 crore players have scored 58 runs so far
From the first match this season till now, he has not been able to show the game for which he is known even after the Punjab team has been included in the playing eleven. Maxwell has just 58 runs in 8 innings of 9 matches. During this time his highest score is 13 not out. This season, Maxwell has seen 5 fours off the bat while he has not been able to hit a single six.
The team does not trust Maxwell
The Punjab team's confidence in Maxwell is becoming less so when Mayank Agarwal was sent along with Chris Gayle in the second super over played against Mumbai. Maxwell holds the status of a hard hitter and is considered superior to Mayank in terms of big shots. Due to poor form, the team's confidence in him has diminished due to which Prabhasimran was sent to bat before him against Kolkata.
