  Glenn Maxwell lashes 'putrid' Melbourne Stars' performances in BBL Glenn Maxwell launched into a scathing assessment of the Melbourne Stars' showings to start the Big Bash League season, repeatedly describing their early-season cricket as "putrid" after the Stars thudded to the bottom of the BBL ladder.

Glenn Maxwell could have been forgiven for letting his head drop after he was overlooked from Australia's ODI squad to face England, but it looks like he's more determined than ever to prove selectors wrong.

His exploits with the bat for Victoria and the Melbourne Stars have been well publicised this summer, but some fans were left questioning Maxwell's fielding after a costly dropped catch against Adelaide a few days ago.

But against the Renegades on Friday night, he quashed those concerns for good.

Somehow, Maxwell flew directly upwards, parried the ball above his head, regained his composure and completed the catch as he fell back to the turf.

Like it or not, every move Maxwell makes at the moment is being scrutinised by fans and doubters alike, but taking what may be the catch of the tournament is certainly a good way to react to the pressure.

He also belted a rapid-fire 31 off 16 balls. Kevin Pietersen was in the runs too, scoring 74 on a strong night for contentious cricketers.

Glenn Maxwell set to clear air with Steve Smith over training comments

  Glenn Maxwell set to clear air with Steve Smith over training comments Glenn Maxwell plans to clear the air with Steve Smith this week to discuss what the Australian captain meant when he questioned Maxwell's training practices following his one-day international axing last week. Fresh off making 60 from 39 balls in the Melbourne Stars' loss to the Adelaide Strikers on Tuesday night, Maxwell addressed Smith's comments publicly for the first time, saying that he and Smith were friends, and that he would take the skipper's feedback on board.

Yes, his axing from the Australian one -day squad was startling, perhaps harsh and publicly handled in a fashion that irked some former Aussie cricketers. But the bottom line is that there were a number of red flags for Maxwell and still, he finds himself on the outer.

Australia snub Glenn Maxwell again as Cameron White earns ODI recall in place of injured Chris Lynn. He has been rewarded for some eye- catching form in the Big Bash , averaging 142.5 for Melbourne Renegades.
