Maxwell will join Lancashire after the 13th season of the IPL with Kings XI Punjab.
Glenn Maxwell will play in the first eight matches with Lancashire for the upcoming 2020 season of the T20 Blast League before returning for national duty with the Australian team.
Maxwell is a star all-rounder who is regarded as one of the best and most destructive T20 players in the history of cricket. He was able to score a total of 305 runs from 11 games at a strike rate of 151. Maxwell is also awarded as the T20 Player of the Year in 2019.
‘Last season was one of the best summers of cricket I have ever experienced and I cannot wait to return to Emirates Old Trafford in 2020’, Maxwell said.
‘We were very unfortunate not to progress further after dominating the North Group and I was so impressed with the talent inside the changing room. I'm very confident we can improve on the quarter-final finish of 2019’, he added.
Paul Allott, Lancashire’s Director of Cricket also said that Maxwell is one of the most sought after players who left a great impact last year.
‘To have a player of his talent on the pitch, as well as the person he is away from the field, can only enhance our prospects in this year's tournament. He is extremely generous with his time in passing on his experiences to younger players and will no doubt play a huge part in their development once again’, Allot said.
Maxwell is also expected to play in the upcoming 13th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) with the Kings XI Punjab before prepping up for the T20 Blast League with Lancashire. To learn more about T20 Blast League, check out Betwala's page for more information.
