There is Kings XI Punjab, there is RCB, who will be looking to get some players to get their balance right. These sides will be very, very active in the auctions. There are teams who will be looking at someone like Maxwell. Surely, RCB will be looking at him. That is my personal opinion. But I feel Maxwell will go to RCB.”
