Virender Sehwag did not mince words when assessing Glenn Maxwell’s performance in the 2020 season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The former India opener went so far as to label the Australian a “10-crore cheerleader” who, according to Sehwag, was on a “well-paid vacation” in the UAE. Glenn Maxwell has finally responded to Sehwag’s comment, but the Australian didn’t get into a mud fight with the ex-Indian cricketer. Instead, Maxwell brushed aside Sehwag’s comments by saying he was okay with his “outspoken” comments.
“It’s okay. Viru has been quite outspoken about his dislike for me, and that’s fine. He can say whatever he likes,” said Maxwell. The Western Australian.
‘He’s in the media for such statements, so that’s fine. I’ll deal with that and go on, and take it with a grain of salt with Sehwag. ‘
Maxwell, who had taken a short break from cricket due to health concerns, said the free time had helped him deal with “things like this”.
“I think I’m better equipped to handle things like that now,” said Maxwell.
“In retrospect, I think it was a pretty good time to go through something like this, where I was able to do some groundwork to deal with setbacks. This year has certainly been a huge test.”
The Australian had a scorching time in the IPL 2020. He played 13 games for Kings XI Punjab and managed to score just 108 runs with an average of 15.42 and a strike rate of 101.88.
