Glenn Maxwell will play IPL ‘until his last walk’

One of the great destructive batters in recent times, Glenn Maxwell revealed that he will play IPL until the last time he can walk. He is currently in Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). 

Maxwell started his IPL journey in 2012 with Delhi Daredevils (now Delhi Capitals). Then he shifted to Mumbai Indians (MI) in the next season and then in the next season he went to Kings XI Punjab (now Punjab Kings). He played there till 2020 and then RCB got him in 2021 and from there he is still playing there. 

He provided a one sided domination in the World Cup match against Afghanistan where he scored a double century and took his team to a great victory single-handedly. After that he played the T20 series against India in the first 3 matches and then he came back to Australia. Also he scored the fastest World Cup century and it came against Netherlands. 

Now he will be seen leading the Melbourne Stars in the Big Bash from tomorrow. 

Glenn Maxwell said,

“The IPL will probably be the last tournament I ever play, as I will play the IPL until I can’t walk anymore.

 I was talking about how good the IPL has been to me throughout my career. the people I have met, the coaches I have played under, the international players that you get to rub shoulders with, how beneficial to my whole career that tournament has been. 

You are rubbing shoulders with AB (Ab de Villiers) and Virat (Virat Kohli) for 2 months, talking to them while watching other games. It’s just the greatest learning experience that any player could ask for.”  

Also he wanted that more Aussie players can get to play IPL as the T20 World Cup is near-

“Hopefully a lot of our Australian players can get over to the IPL and get to work in slightly similar conditions to the west indies where it is a little bit dryer it will spin.”

As he will be leading Melbourne Stars in the BBL he is expecting some great news also came in this tournament- 

“As soon as we want this world cup we all talked about the three things we should focus on. I am hoping it’s going to be a really exciting summer for the BBL with what is just around the corner. Hopefully a little bit more importance on putting your name up in the headlines for the right reasons and trying to push for those spots.”
