Watch: Glenn Maxwell stepped seamlessly into the RCB camp, unfurling a series of reverse sweeps and switch hits in the nets.
The Australian, who greeted Yuzvendra Chahal with a warm hug and some light banter, played a couple of switch hits against the leg-spinner before playing some reverse sweeps against medium pacer Dan Christian.
Maxwell’s form in IPL 2020 had earned massive criticism, as the Australian made just 108 runs in 13 matches, averaging 15.42 while striking at 101.88.
