IPL 2020: Maxwell Responds to Sehwag’s Criticism

IPL 2020: Maxwell Responds to Sehwag’s Criticism

After his disappointing stint with Kings XI Punjab in this year’s IPL, Glenn Maxwell was criticized by Virender Sehwag. Former Indian batsman went on to call Maxwell “10-crore cheerleader”. Maxwell finally responded to Sehwag’s opinion.

Viru on Maxwell’s IPL campaign

Glenn Maxwell had not played last year’s Indian Premier League. He had decided to focus on country cricket instead to make a Test cricket comeback in the Ashes. However, he had failed to do the same. Ahead of the IPL 2020 auction he made himself available and was roped in by his old franchise KXIP for a whopping 10.75 crore price. The fans had high hopes from him in the recently concluded league but Maxwell failed to make any impact. He invited a lot of criticism including some harsh words from Virender Sehwag.

Virender Sehwag had remarked that Maxwell was on a “highly paid vacation”. “Glenn Maxwell. This 10-crore cheerleader proved costly for Punjab. And he has had a bad record of shirking work over the past few seasons. But this season he went to new extreme. This is what you call a highly-paid vacation,” Sehwag said.

Maxwell responds

Recently Maxwell came up with his response for the same comments by Sehwag. Maxwell said, “It’s ok. Viru is pretty outspoken with his dislike of me, and that’s fine. He’s allowed to say whatever he likes. He’s in the media for such statements, so that’s fine. I deal with that and move on, and take it with a grain of salt with Sehwag.”

He also opined while talking to The West Australian about the sabbatical he had taken last year due to depression. “I think I’m better equipped [after last year’s sabbatical] with dealing with those sorts of things [criticisms] now. I think in hindsight it was a pretty good time to go through something like that where I was able to put some groundwork in to deal with adversity. This year has certainly been a massive test of it.”
