Australia cricketer Glenn Maxwell has started practicing with Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) for the IPL 2021. RCB posted a video of Maxwell's batting in his first practice session.
The Aussie, who was paid INR 14.25 crore in the auction, got reunited with Yuzvendra Chahal in IPL, after featuring in the Mumbai Indians squad together back in 2013. They had a bit of banter while hugging each other which shows their bonding.
Later in the video, Maxwell took on Chahal in the practice match and smashed him for boundaries off reverse sweeps. He also tried unorthodox shots on Australia all-rounder Daniel Christian.
RCB's highest-paid player in the IPL 2021 auction, New Zealand pacer Kyle Jamieson has also joined the camp. He was bought for INR 15 crore by the franchise.
"Glenn Maxwell’s Day Out @Gmaxi_32 came. Maxwell reverse swept. And Maxwell had fun. Watch The Big Show and Kyle Jamieson at their first practice session for #RCB ahead of #IPL2021," wrote RCB while posting the video.
