IPL 2013 only millionaire Maxwell eyeing Sachin wicket

It seems that nothing can go wrong for Glenn Maxwell at the moment. The Australian all rounder became the top gainer in this year’s player auction for sixth Indian Premier League. The 24 year old has been awarded 1 million US Dollars for donning Mumbai Indian’s jersey in the forthcoming season of IPL. He was the only player from Indian and overseas lot to reach the million mark in this year’s IPL auctions. After his inclusion in the team squad of Mumbai Indians, he also got the call for Australian test team. Before IPL, India and Australia are going to play a 4 match test series for staking claim to the Border- Gavaskar trophy.

Until his IPL bid, Glenn Maxwell has not been invited to perform for Australian test team and he has featured only in the limited over format. However, his inclusion in the Australian test team before IPL 2013 implies that his performances are improving to match the rigorous test vigour requirement. The Mumbai Indians off field squad would be happy with this move since it gives ample time to their coveted buy of the season to get accustomed to the Indian playing conditions. Even Glenn Maxwell is excited about his test debut. While a media interaction, Maxwell said that he is looking forward to bowl to Sachin and grab his wicket.

Glenn Maxwell would be sharing dressing room with Mumbai Indian Icon Sachin Tendulkar and other big names like Ricky Ponting, Lasith Malinga, Kieron Pollard, Harbhajan Singh and others. However, before that he would like to bask in some bragging points by claiming Sachin’s wicket in the test series. Maxwell has earlier bowled to Sachin while playing for Chairman’s XI and was hit pan park. He would be intending to improve that if he encounters the batting legend.
