Maxwell is one cricketer who has always generated tremendous interest at the IPL auction. A brilliant fielder, who can contribute with his off-spin, the Australian can play the role of a floater in a line-up. His one of the best seasons was in 2014 when Maxwell teamed up with David Miller for Kings XI Punjab in clobbering the opposition and he now again returns to KXIP. The franchise went all out for him and could finally secure his services at a whopping INR 10.75 crore.
