Glen Maxwell: The Maddest Max

 

With a healthy dose of entertainment, drama and some regular twists, The Glenn Maxwell Show has opened to a rousing reception in the first week of the Indian Premier League 2014 in UAE.


After spending most of his time on the bench for the Mumbai Indians in the last couple of seasons, Maxwell has found solace in his new environment. That Maxwell has coolly steered his side in two successful run chases, making an absolute mockery of big totals (205 vs Chennai Super Kings and 191 vs Rajasthan Royals) adds weight to the punt that Punjab took when they bid in excess of a million for a player who hardly got an opportunity to play in his previous seasons. 

At the post-match ceremony after Punjab's seven-wicket win over Rajasthan on Sunday, Maxwell was asked a tongue-in-cheek question if this season provides him an opportunity to show what Mumbai Indians have missed, he smartly steered cleared of any controversial remark and admitted he was fortunate to have been picked up by Punjab. Yet, the idea of redemption adds to an already magnificent plot. From a fringe player at the Delhi Daredevils and a million-dollar bench warmer at the Mumbai Indians, Maxwell has made a seamless transition into a brutal entertainer at Kings XI Punjab, slamming 95 off 43 balls and 89 off 45.

Through his two monumental efforts, he has also covered for his team's shortcomings on the field and their lack of quality spin options to exploit the UAE conditions. Whether he can sustain this form will go a long way in determining the success or failure of his team this season. For the moment, however, the mood in the Punjab camp will be a happy one, celebrating two wins in their first two fixtures for the first time in seven years of the tournament.
