Glenn Maxwell’s potential as an all-rounder was recognised in his debut season in Australia’s domestic circuit, in 2010 itself. As a result, he went to South Africa as part of Victoria’s squad for the Champions League Twenty20. A versatile batsman who can bat anywhere in the line-up, Maxwell also adds value with his off-spin and contributes by saving runs on the field. He was a part of the Delhi Daredevils in 2012 and was bought by the Mumbai Indians at the IPL Player Auction 2013 for USD 1 million – which was also the year’s highest bid. A hard-hitter of the ball, he was recruited by KXIP in the IPL Player Auction 2014 and has since made vital contributions to the team. The Australian was integral to the team’s success when they made it to the final in 2014 and will be hoping to set the stage alight again in Vivo IPL 2016.
