IPL 2020 Auction: Kings XI Punjab Bag Glenn Maxwell For Massive 10.75 Cr

Australia all-rounder Glenn Maxwell, who entered the IPL 2020 auction for a base price of INR 2 Cr, was bagged by the Kings XI Punjab for a massive INR 10.75 Cr. After an intense bidding between Delhi Capitals and Punjab, finally the all-rounder was bagged by the latter for an astounding amount.

Punjab, who have excellent depth in the squad, both in batting and bowling, with the likes of Chris Gayle, Mayank Agarwal, Mohammed Shami and Mujeeb ur Rahman, didn’t have a world class all-rounder. But with this bid, they sealed that department too.

Maxwell, who didn’t feature in last year’s IPL, has a decent record in the league. In the 201& season, he scored 310 runs in 14 matches at a strike rate of 173. His best year so far has been with Punjab in 2014, when he single-handedly took them to the final.

In that season, Maxwell played 16 matches and scored 552 runs at a strike rate of 187.75.
