Maxwell got engaged to Raman just before the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020. The couple has been together for a long time and started getting spotted together back in 2017.
According to a report by News18, Vini has done her studies in the field of medical science from Mentone Girls secondary college and is a practising pharmacist in Melbourne.
People took to the microblogging website to share the viral wedding invitation. One user wrote, “Never thought I would see “chiranjeevi glenn maxwell, son of thiru neil maxwell-joy” on a wedding invitation.”
Another commented, “Congratulations. We wish them all the very best for a happy married life.”
“Tamilians not letting go of their traditions is always a pleasant sight,” said a third user.
Maxwell was not part of the Indian Premier League (IPL) auction which took place over the weekend after he was one of RCB’s three retentions ahead of the 2022 season. He will be paid Rs 11 crore. The Bengaluru-based cricket team also retained ex-captain Virat Kohli and Indian pacer Mohammed Siraj.
Royal Challenger’s Bangalore has spent big money at the auction to purchase IPL 2021’s purple cap winner Harshal Patel and Sri Lankan all-rounder Wanindu Hasranga.
Maxwell’s Australian teammate Josh Hazlewood will also join the team along with veteran South African batter Faf du Plessis. After being released by Punjab Kings, Maxwell joined RCB before IPL 2021 and was one of their star performers as they made it to the playoffs. He scored 513 runs in 15 games at a strike rate of 144.10. Maxwell is currently playing for Australia in a five-match T20I series against Sri Lanka.
