Australian opener David Warner recently got a chance to try his hand in the commentary box. On this occasion, Warner did not miss the opportunity to make funny comments on his own country all-rounder Glenn Maxwell and made funny jokes about Maxwell about the IPL. Former Australian opener Mark Waugh also joined Warner. Maxwell was recently bought by Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at an IPL auction for Rs 14.5 crore. The right-handed player was the third most expensive player of the year. He was followed by Chris Morris from South Africa and Kyle Jamieson from New Zealand. Maxwell got this amount when his previous IPL was very bad.
Maxwell had scored just 108 runs in 13 matches, playing for Kings XI Punjab (now Punjab Kings) in the last IPL. This is not the first time that a franchise has invested crores of rupees for Maxwell. He has collected Rs 34 crores in the last three seasons. During the first T20 match between Australia and New Zealand, Warner had the opportunity to comment on Fox Sports. Meanwhile, when Maxwell came to bowl, Warner commented on him in a funny tone. Mark Waugh was with Warner in the commentary box at the time. Waugh said that Maxwell has benefited immensely in terms of money, given Maxwell’s performance in the last IPL.
The IPL auction results for Big Show have not been bad, “Woner told the commentary box. Looking at his last IPL season, not at all” Waugh said. Captain Warner, who led Sunrisers Hyderabad to the title in 2016, was surprised that Maxwell was released by his franchise and another franchise bought him for more money. However, Warner admitted that Maxwell, who was known for his fiery batting in the T20, was entitled to the money he received. Warner stated, “It’s amazing that your franchise releases you and you get more money after release.
We know what Maxwell is capable of. I know he will have high expectations but I am confident that he will live up to the expectations. Maxwell was bought by Kings XI Punjab for Rs 10.75 crore. However, he did not meet expectations. The team had expected her to win the match on several occasions but she could not cross the line. This time Maxwell has been named by RCB and it is expected that Maxwell will overcome his middle-order weakness and strengthen the team.
