In the high-stakes Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 Eliminator clash against Rajasthan Royals (RR), Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) all-rounder Glenn Maxwell faced a bitter disappointment, enduring a dismissal for a golden duck at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Wednesday (May 22).

Maxwell, who has been under intense scrutiny for his inconsistent performances throughout the season, had a golden opportunity to make a significant impact in the crucial knockout fixture. However, his innings was cut short without him making any significant contribution to the team’s total.

Glenn Maxwell’s disappointing exit

Entering the crease in the 13th over after Ravichandran Ashwin dismissed the dangerous Cameron Green, Maxwell’s arrival was eagerly awaited by RCB fans, who were hopeful that he would rise to the occasion and propel the team to a formidable total. Nevertheless, much to their dismay, Maxwell’s innings lasted just one ball. In a bid to assert himself early on, he attempted a lofted shot, only to find Dhruv Jurel stationed perfectly at long-on, ready to take the catch.

Fans backlash

Maxwell’s dismissal triggered a flurry of reactions on social media, with many RCB supporters expressing frustration over his shot selection and eagerness to score big right from the outset. The Australian cricketer has faced heavy criticism for his poor run in IPL 2024, managing only 52 runs across nine innings at a dismal average of 5.78. His performance places him among the lowest-scoring top-six batters this season, marginally ahead of Devdutt Padikkal, who averaged 5.43.

Here’s how Twitter reacted:

RR’s victory over RCB in the IPL 2024 Eliminator

Meanwhile in the match, RCB batted first and posted a total of 172/8 in their 20 overs. Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis provided a steady start with a partnership of 37 runs, but RCB kept losing wickets at regular intervals. Rajat Patidar and Mahipal Lomror played crucial innings, but RR’s bowlers, especially Trent Boult and Ravichandran Ashwin, kept the pressure on.

Chasing 173 for victory, RR started well with Jaiswal scoring briskly, but RCB’s bowlers managed to take wickets at key moments. Riyan Parag and Shimron Hetmyer made valuable contributions, but it was Rovman Powell‘s late burst that ensured RR’s victory with an over to spare.
