In the present season of IPL, KXIP hasn’t performed very well until now. They have only managed to win 1 out of 7 matches which are not even near to satisfying.
Even though the highest runs scorer, KL Rahul, and the second-highest run-scorer, Mayank Agarwal belongs to KXIP, they haven’t got the results they were looking for. The problem for KXIP has been the batsman in the middle order. They have failed to perform this season.
GLENN MAXWELL’S FORM
Furthermore, the Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell, who is a very destructive batsman, has been in poor form. He is known for his destructive batting with fearless shape. However, the player has been encountering some issues with consistency.
He’s not been consistent lately. He played very well for Australia before IPL but the performance changed as soon as it came to IPL.
The Australian all-rounder has put up a total of 58 runs in 7 games. The player is yet to discover his good shape. This inconsistency might be due to the changes in position at which he has to bat.
When he plays for the Australians, he bats at one position and it has remained the same throughout. In an interview, Maxwell stated that he had played very well for Australia however, couldn’t do the same in IPL for KXIP.
He stated that the position he’s assigned to bat at, it is very different and that he is getting used to the role. He has put a lot of effort to bat at that position. The West Indian batsman Nicholas Pooran is batting astonishingly at the fourth position.
Maxwell said that he has been hitting the ball pretty well so his job is to get him on the strike as much as possible. And assist him in providing an excellent ending to the inning.
Even though Maxwell hasn’t performed until now. We may get to see his destructive batting in upcoming matches.
The Australian all-rounder has still managed to stay not out in four games. He stated that it has been very strange. And that he is getting used to the role and he’ll be back to his original form eventually.
Hope that we get to see Maxwell in the same destructive way he’s known for. When Maxi comes on the pitch it’s undoubtedly a terror for the bowlers.
Stay tuned for upcoming updates!
