Says he isn’t stressed about the burden of expectations thrust upon him by his big price tag

Glenn Maxwell wants to be a “positive influence” on the Royal Challengers Bangalore, his new IPL team, and isn’t stressed about the burden of expectations that comes with his price tag of INR 14.25 crore (approx AUD 2,500,000).

“I probably don’t set targets. I think for myself, I just want to have a positive influence on the group, whether it be my performance, or attitude or the way I even help with the fielding practice – if I see improvement in the whole squad, the whole team as a collective, over the tournament,” Maxwell said in an interview on the Royal Challengers’ YouTube channel. “Obviously, we want to win the tournament, but I want to make sure that everything I do during this time has a positive influence on the group.

“So, I’m not overly concerned. I think my performances will take care of themselves. I want to have a positive influence on everything I do, as far as attitude, helping out around the team, leadership-wise helping out Virat [Kohli] when he needs it, and off the field, at training, and making sure the young guys are still developing as well.”
