Twitter reactions to huge sums for Maxwell & Morris



Last Updated on 3 years by Charbel Coorey

Twitter reactions to huge sums for Maxwell & Morris | Maxwell & Morris sold to RCB and RR for a massive 14.25cr and 16.25cr respectively.

Two things are certain. First, Twitter will go into meltdown during the exciting IPL Auctions. Second, Glenn Maxwell is a big winner.

Maxwell, a star T20 player for Australia, has surprisingly struggled over the years in IPL cricket. In fact, in IPL 2020, Maxwell failed to hit a single six. However, franchises simply can’t ignore his potential on a year-by-year basis, with the bidding war reaching incredible heights on Thursday afternoon in Chennai.

Starting with a base price of 2cr, Maxwell’s price continued to skyrocket by the second, with a prolonged battle finally ending at a huge price of 14.75cr (US$1.96m), forked out by Royal Challengers Bangalore. Maxwell’s past in the IPL, as well as RCB’s talented but likely heavily-relied on trio of Kohli, de Villiers, and Maxwell were some of the many talking points as Maxwell once again had an outing to remember at an IPL Auction.

Chris Morris was also a huge winner early in the auction. Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore, the franchise who released Morris last season, became the most expensive signing in IPL history, snapped up for a massive 16.25cr (US$2.23m) by Rajasthan Royals. His injury record was of key focus for fans, but his prowess at the death can’t be taken lightly.

Here are some of the Twitter reactions, with some absolutely hilarious tweets.
