The match no. 26 between Punjab Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore was one of the most awaited matches of this season. The reason behind the same was only one player – Glenn ‘Big Show’ Maxwell. Yes, the RCB all-rounder was returning to play for the first time against his former side, since he was released by Punjab. Maxwell had been in top form for Virat Kohli’s side coming into this contest and the fans were eagerly waiting to see how he performs against Punjab Kings.
Maxwell gets out on a golden duck
Chasing a target of 180, RCB found themselves in a state of bother with them reeling at 62/2 in 10.1 overs. Having just dismissed skipper Virat Kohli, youngster Harpreet Brar was raring with confidence. As Maxwell came at the crease, the left-arm spinner bowled a peach of a delivery which completely bamboozled the Aussie as it crashed onto the stumps. The reaction of Maxwell summed up the moment as he had no clue what just happened with him.

While it was a really disappointing outing for Maxwell, the fans finally got a moment to troll him as he failed to make an impact against his former team. While the social media account of Punjab Kings also took a sly dig, the fans came up with hilarious comments as they sarcastically thanked the Aussie for showing his loyalty for Punjab by scoring a golden duck.
Here are the best reactions:
Maxi comes, Maxi goes 🕺
Oh yaaar, we love you Brar! 🔥🔥🔥🔥
