The players’ auction of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 is currently under progress in Chennai, and Australian superstar Glenn Maxwell has already triggered a bidding war among franchises.

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) battled it out to take Maxwell in their team. The Aussie all-rounder had registered for INR 2 Cr base price and finally got sold to RCB for a whopping INR 14.25 Cr.

Despite having his worst IPL campaign last year, the big-hitting Victorian has been picked by RCB because of his scintillating form in the recently-concluded Big Bash League (BBL) 2020-21.

Interestingly, a few days before the special event, Maxwell has expressed his desire to join RCB. He had stated that featuring for RCB will help him fulfil his long-time wish to play alongside his idol and former South Africa cricketer AB de Villiers.
