Virender Sehwag is known for his impeccable opinion. He speaks openly about cricketers and their performances. He made some similar remarks about Glenn Maxwell’s performance in the Indian Premier League 2020. In the list of the five most flop players of this year, he called Maxwell a ‘cheerleader of 100 million’. Sehwag said that Maxwell was ‘paid a lot of money for the holiday’. Maxwell scored just 103 runs in 13 matches of the IPL.
Sehwag said in his YouTube channel ‘Veeru’s Meet’, ‘Glenn Maxwell, this 10 crore cheerleader proved to be very expensive for Punjab. His performance in the last few IPL was continuously deteriorating, but this time he broke that record as well. This is what you call high paid vacation.
Maxwell has now responded to Sehwag’s remarks. He said he was not surprised by the former Indian opener’s remarks. Sehwag has not made any such comment for the first time. Maxwell, who has been associated with Kings XI Punjab since 2014, said that Sehwag never hid his disappointment about his game. Significantly, Sehwag has played for Kings XI Punjab and has also been a mentor of that team.
He said, ‘Okay. Veeru dislikes me and has been openly expressing his opinion about this, okay. He can say whatever he wants. If he is in the media because of these statements, then it goes on. I listen to it and move on. I do not believe his words immediately. ‘
