Posted On

Australia all-rounder Glenn Maxwell was roped in by the Kings XI Punjab at a mindboggling amount of Rs 10.75 Crore, making him one of the most expensive overseas recruits in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 auction in Kolkata on Thursday.

Maxwell has been part of Bollywood actress Preity Zinta co-owned KXIP setup earlier, which could work in his favour.

‘The Big Show’ is a veteran in the IPL mix. He was the biggest buy during the IPL 2013 auctions. That year, he began with a base price of $200,000, and was finally bought by Mumbai Indians for a whopping $1 million.

Next season, in 2014, Punjab had bought him for Rs 6 crore and then, retained him.

In 2018, Maxwell was sold to Delhi Capitals for Rs 9 crore.

The big-hitter is returning to competitive cricket after taking a break to focus on his mental health.
