The Australian power-hitter has been participating in the IPL since 2012 but emerged after joining the Mumbai Indians lineup that clinched their maiden championship in 2013.

Maxwell thoughts on IPL :

I probably wasn’t as culturally aware as a young player about India: Maxwell

“The IPL has changed my life in an amazing way that I have been able to meet some of my heroes, some of the people I have admired playing for and against. IPL has changed me as a cricketer, changed me as a person. I probably wasn’t as culturally aware as a young player about India. The people that I have met, the things that I have learned from the IPL have helped me as a cricketer and more importantly as a person”, said Maxwell.

“I owe the IPL a hell of a lot because it has also helped me as an international cricketer. I have been able to adapt to different situations which I never thought I would do ever”, he added.

Following his release by Punjab Kings due to poor performance in the 2020 edition, RCB has shown trust in the Australian all-rounder during the 2021 IPL mini-auction and signed him for INR 14.25 Cr. The T20 World Cup winner responded by allowing his bat to do the talking, upon concluding the season as the three-time finalist highest run-scorer with 513 runs.
