Glenn Maxwell has always been a hot property at IPL auctions. The Australian all-rounder has been a huge success in T20 cricket due to his ability of tormenting teams with his hard-hitting batting. Even though Maxwell made his IPL debut in 2012, where he played a couple of matches for Delhi Daredevils, he caught everyone's attention at the 2013 IPL auction.

Mumbai Indians stunned everyone when they went on to buy Glenn Maxwell at a staggering price of 1 million dollars. The big show, as Maxwell is famously called, was an unknown quantity back then and thus it was a huge gamble by the Mumbai based franchise. Strangely, Mumbai Indians played Maxwell in just 3 matches in which he scored 36 runs. It was quite fascinating to notice the amount of money spent by Mumbai Indians on a player who ended up playing just 3 matches.
