Glenn Maxwell responds to Virender Sehwag’s ‘10 crore cheerleader’ remark

Glenn Maxwell has responded to Virender Sehwag’s remark, saying he wasn’t surprised at the former India opener’s comment and that it’s not the first time this has happened.

Meanwhile, earlier Sehwag said to Maxi “Glenn Maxwell. This 10 crore cheerleader proved very costly for Punjab. His IPL routine for the last few years has been of shirking from work but this season he broke that record as well. This is what you call a highly paid vacation,” Sehwag said of Maxwell in an episode of his YouTube show ‘Viru ki Baithak’, a few days back.
