Wellington: Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell has said that he will get a good opportunity to play alongside Indian team captain Virat Kohli in the Indian Premier League (IPL). According to Maxwell, during this time he will also get an opportunity to learn a lot about the game from Virat. That is why he is excited about playing IPL. According to Maxwell, Virat is currently one of the best batsmen in the world and is at the top of the game. In such a situation, playing with them is beneficial in every way. Virat’s captain Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) bought Maxwell for Rs 14.25 crore in the auction last month.
After the poor performance in IPL 2020, Punjab Kings had ‘released’ to Maxwell. “He (Kohli) has been overshadowed in all formats from Tests to T20s and has been number one in the game for some time now,” said Maxwell. He said, “He adapts his game according to the circumstances, maintains dominance for a long time.” The Indian Premier League is likely to start in the second week of April and the Australian all-rounder hopes to learn leadership qualities from the Indian captain during this period. Kohli will be the captain of Maxwell at RCB. The 32-year-old all-rounder said, “I am eager to understand not only the match but also their working style for practice. Hopefully, I will be able to learn some qualities of leadership skills from them as well.
