2. Glenn Maxwell
Glenn Maxwell’s IPL career was nomadic before he found his feet in the Punjab lineup back in 2014. He was part of Mumbai Indians and Delhi Daredevils in seasons ’12 and ’13. Since he was bagged by the KXIP franchise, the hard-hitter hasn’t looked behind, as he impressed one and all in 2014 edition of the IPL, accumulating 552 runs in the season.
Maxwell was also handed over the captaincy in this season and he infused a never-say-die Aussie attitude into the team, which was visible this season as they fought till their last game. Despite lukewarm seasons in ’15 and ’16, Maxwell had a decent time in this IPL as he smashed 310 runs at a strike 174 in the middle-order and also picked important wickets.
