Harbhajan Singh on Maxwell versus Jadeja for the IPL 2024 opener: “He can be unstoppable, but it will be hard to go big from ball one.”

<p>All eyes will be on the exciting inaugural match between the reigning champion Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium as the Indian Premier League (IPL) draws nearer. Former Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh shared his opinions on the match between Glenn Maxwell and Ravindra Jadeja, two of the game’s top all-rounders.</p>

<p>With 400 runs in the previous season and a double century against Afghanistan to guarantee their place in the ODI World Cup 2023 knockout stages, the Australian batsman has been in excellent form. It is customary for the batsman to attack the bowlers from the first ball, but Harbhajan believes it would be difficult to carry out in this way, particularly in Chennai’s spin-friendly conditions. “To just go out there and start hitting those sixes is a big task for anyone,” he said.</p>
<p>The former CSK player, who has represented his country in both the IPL and international competitions, believes that giving oneself enough time to arrive and settle there is a better strategy for the game. You have to allow yourself enough time to play singles and doubles, he said. I believe you’re putting yourself in risk if you don’t play ten balls here before you start hitting those boundaries.</p>
<p>In the contest between the two elite all-rounders, the 43-year-old predicted Jadeja to win. “At any moment, you may go. Therefore, I believe Jadeja will defeat Maxwell in this specific duel on that wicket, where it will somewhat help Jadeja, said Harbhajan.</p>
<p>However, the IPL seasoned player recognized Maxwell’s ability to change the game’s outcome in the team’s favor at any time. “Maxwell is unstoppable on his day. It will be difficult for anybody to start hammering sixes from the first delivery on this wicket, however. But Maxwell is the only one who is capable of doing it. “Let’s see who prevails in this competition,” Harbhajan said.</p>
<p>In an intense battle between two teams hoping to earn their first points of the year and get off to a strong start, Maxwell and Jadeja will be at the heart of the action.</p>
