Kings XI Punjab batsman Glenn Maxwell has been in woeful form in the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League. The Australian heavy-hitter has scored just 48 runs in six games for the franchise so far at an average of 12. Maxwell’s form has become a topic of discussion, especially with KXIP not playing Chris Gayle, and losing five matches this season so far, four of which were consecutive.

In a recent chat from sources, former India opener Virender Sehwag criticised Maxwell and questioned the logic behind franchises going after him.

“Don’t know what sort of a platform Glenn Maxwell needs to explode. He came in early (against Sunrisers Hyderabad) after Punjab lost two batsmen quickly. A lot of overs were left this time, but he failed. Earlier, he didn’t have pressure (batting in the death overs in previous matches), yet he got out without performing,” Sehwag, who played for the franchise in 2014 and was later involved as part of its coaching staff, said.
