After a couple of disappointing shows in the first two T20Is, Glenn Maxwell unleashed his best in the third T20I against New Zealand and played a rampaging knock. Coming to number four in the first innings, the dasher went after the bowlers from the outset, and smashed runs all over the Westpac Stadium in Wellington. From Tim Southee to Trent Boult, Maxwell spared none and scored 70 runs off mere 31 deliveries with eight boundaries and five scintillating sixes. Thanks to his efforts, Australia posted a mountain of 208/4 while batting first. Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) fans were nothing but elated seeing the Aussie dasher’s stupendous striking as they flooded social media with praises. Here’s How RCB Planned to Buy Glenn Maxwell in IPL 2021 Players Auction (Watch Mock Auction).

For the unversed, RCB bought Maxwell for a whooping INR 14.25 crore in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 players auction. As the Aussie all-rounder, playing for Kings XI Punjab (now Punjab Kings), had a terrible season in IPL 2020, several raised eyebrows over the Virat Kohli-led team going bonkers for Maxwell. Moreover, the 32-year-old registered scores of 1 and 3 in the first two T20I games. However, the right-handed batsman switched his A-game on in the third T20I and earned applauds. Meanwhile, let’s look at how social media users reacted.
