Eyebrows were raised when Mumbai Indians bought Glenn Maxwell for a mammoth one million dollars. Voices grew even louder as he continued to warm the bench (for 12 matches).

Finally, the million-dollar baby got a go on Saturday against laggards Pune Warriors in MI’s 13th match, but he did not get a great chance to showcase 
his worth.

Warriors, after winning the toss, opted to bat and put up a paltry score of 112 in 20 overs out of which Maxwell bowled only one over for five runs.

Chasing the target, Mumbai did not promote him up the order. When he came out to bat, the job was already done as MI needed just 20 runs to complete an easy win. He finished with an unbeaten 13 off seven deliveries with a six and
a four.
