Finally, RCB placed a bid of 14.25 crore to get Glenn Maxwell on board.
Australia all-rounder Glenn Maxwell sparked a bidding war between four franchises – Kolkata Knight Riders, Rajasthan Royals, Royal Challengers Bangalore, and Chennai Super Kings – before finally getting sold to RCB for a whopping 14.25 cr in the IPL auction 2021 in Chennai.

It was KKR who gave the first bid at 2 cr (base price) for Maxwell. Rajasthan Royals were quick to join in. For the initial stage, the bidding war continued between RR and KKR. The Rajasthan Royals were the first to opt out after Royal Challengers Bangalore came in the fray.

KKR too opted out as soon as Chennai Super Kings threw its hat in the ring. The bidding then went on for more than 15 minutes with CSK and RCB placing one bid after another to get a hold of Maxwell.

Finally, RCB placed a bid of 14.25 crore to get Maxwell on board.

The dynamic Australian all-rounder’s poor show in the previous edition of the IPL had no bearings on his popularity among franchises.
