IPL 2021: Diet, mindset boost RCB’s Glenn Maxwell | Cricket News
This season, he is Royal Challengers Bangalore’s highest run-getter with 407 runs from 12 matches at a strike rate of 145.35.
The 32-year-old pegged his transformation to change in diet and mindset.
“Diet was probably a big one. I changed a few things, I’m not 25 anymore. I was making sure I was in good fitness when I turned up for RCB. As far as batting was concerned, it was more of replicating the mindset that I had during the Big Bash (League) and other international fixtures,” he said on
On what clicks for him with the bat in T20s, Maxwell said: “I know I can score quickly, I do that well in oneday cricket, so in T20 cricket it was more about the start of the innings by just having a solid technique, making sure I take in all the information before I take that big first risk. You are so much more equipped if you are taking that information.”
Maxwell pointed out that for him to sustain his form, the initial momentum is crucial.
“I think I have just got a nice bit of momentum from the start of the tournament (in India). I started well and I think that’s a big part. In the past years, where I have played well, I have started the tournament well and been able to continue that momentum going forward. If you look at 2014 and 2017, two of my better years, in all of the first few games, I began well,” he said.
This season, the way the openers have set it up for us, I have been able to go out and play my natural game,” he added.
