RCB bowler revealed
The first match of the second phase will be played between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians. Meanwhile, Yuzvendra Chahal of RCB has revealed that the reason for Glenn Maxwell’s return to his best batting line-up was because he was aware that this franchise was completely different from the rest of those franchises. He knows this thing that, it does not matter to RCB captain Virat Kohli what he is doing outside and how many runs he is scoring. All they want is that the player gives at least 100% during the match.
This year, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) rained heavy notes on this Australian batsman in the IPL 2021 auction. He was bought and attached to the team for a whopping amount of Rs 14.25 crore. Giving the reasoning behind his inclusion in the team, RCB said that Virat Kohli and especially AB de Villiers wanted a big hitter in the middle order to reduce the pressure to finish the match.
Maxwell played a brilliant role in the first leg for RCB
Talking about the points table of RCB, in the first phase of IPL 2021, Virat team had performed brilliantly and due to this they are in third place in the points table. Talking about Glenn Maxwell on the other hand, he has played a great role in the first phase for RCB in the middle order. Batting at a strike rate of 153.32 in 7 matches, he has scored 223 runs. In which 2 half-centuries have also come out of his bat. His best score is 78 runs.
Earlier this Australian batsman was part of Punjab Kings. His performance in IPL 2020 last year was very poor. He scored only 108 runs in the entire season batting in just 13. Known for his lofty sixes, this player’s bat remained calm throughout the season. His high score was 32 runs and only he batted at a strike rate of 101.88. Seeing his poor performance, Punjab released him this year.
Yuzvendra Chahal tells how Maxwell did wonders
Before the IPL 2021 auction, Glenn Maxwell had expressed his desire to play for RCB. He admitted that he feels comfortable under Kohli’s captaincy. Because he was made clear about what his job with the bat would be and how he was completely free to do it. Recently, on former cricketer Aakash Chopra’s YouTube channel, Yuzvendra Chahal, while talking about this, told what was the reason for his success in RCB.
Talking to Aakash Chopra about the batsman, UG said that,
“Virat Kohli is also the captain of the Indian team in T20. They don’t like what you do outside. But, when you play with the team, give your 100 percent and maybe Maxwell knew that the relaxation that was there in the rest of the franchise is not here.
