Aussies at the IPL: Who starred, who chipped in, who flopped across the regular season?

Australia

Glenn Maxwell had one of his worst IPL’s ever to the point where he dropped himself midway through the tournament to save coach Andy Flower and captain Faf du Plessis having to make a difficult call that they ultimately might have made anyway. He was later recalled and dropped again having registered scores of 0, 3, 28, 0, 1, 0, and 4 at a strike-rate of 97.29. But as ever with the mercurial Maxwell, he was recalled for RCB’s must-win match against CSK and delivered to help his side reach the playoffs. He smacked 16 off five balls in the final two overs and then took 1 for 25 including the key wicket of Ruturaj Gaikwad first ball of the innings. That boost of confidence might be just what sparks him ahead of the playoffs and the T20 World Cup.
