DC vs KXIP IPL 2020: Is Glenn Maxwell available for Kings XI Punjab’s opening game?

The much awaited IPL is here. The stage is set. The players are ready. The whole cricketing fraternity is looking down upon UAE. It is time for some twenty twenty action of year 2020. All the teams are looking forward for the action to begin.

Is the big show Glenn Maxwell ready for IPL?

Glenn Maxwell who is popularly known as the Big Show by his Aussie teammates will be looking to stamp his authority on the IPL. It is a well known fact that the IPL was moved to the UAE during the 2014 year. It was at that tournament that Maxwell lived upto his tag and reputation. He smacked all the bowlers to all parts and really made a terrific impact when he turned out for Kings XI Punjab in that edition. Now also he is eager to have a similar impact and will be raring to have a great outing this year.

This year’s scenario has a lot of sub plots as far as far as cricketing sense goes. The quarantining protocols have to be followed for being eligible to play. But suddenly those have been disappeared for English and Aussie cricketers who have arrived late for the IPL bandwagon. Since these players have already been in a secure bio bubble and then arrived via a charter flight, they have been exempted.

Kings XI take on DC in their opener

The Kings xi Punjab will take on Delhi Capitals for their opening game in IPL 13th edition. The management have confirmed today that they have Big Show Glenn Maxwell available for selection in their opening game. This will be a major boost for them as he is a mainstay in their middle order. The Kings XI vs DC also has an interesting sub plot wherein former Kings XI Punjab captain and experienced campaigner Ravichandran Ashwin will turn out for Delhi Capitals this time. He will be playing under regular DC skipper Shreyas Iyer but as an off spinner and a shrewd tactician, will want to prove that he’s got what it takes to shine in this best cricketing competition in terms of quality.
