IPL 2021: Glenn Maxwell lot happier at RCB, says Sunil Gavaskar
Sunil Gavaskar believes Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell is a lot happier at Royal Challengers Bangalore following a couple of poor Indian Premier League (IPL) seasons.
Speaking to Star Sports, the orignal little master said, "He seems a lot happier at RCB than last year. You can see that in his performance. If you are happy at a particular place, if you think I want to make a contribution, want to make a difference, then you go out and try your best. That's what he is doing."
Further explaining how staying in the company of Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers has helped Maxwell's frame of mind, he said, "I think he is happy in the company of Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers. Maybe those two have taken the pressure of expectations from him. When he was at the Punjab Kings, the pressure of expectation was on him to turn the games around. But he knows he has got two match-winners in AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli and the pressure is not only on him."
The Bangalore outfit retained the third spot on the table after beating Mumbai Indians on Sunday. Kohli's side is well-poised to enter the play-offs, having won six out of their first ten matches.
