Earlier, social media was critical of the Australian senior cricketer who did not shake hands with Sarfraz, who had come running onto the ground after Pakistan created history by defeating Australia in a tournament final.

Maxwell took to Twitter to clarify that it was a genuine miss from his part and he would make up for it.

In a similar incident, Peter Siddle was involved in a fiery clash in his Canadian Global T20 league clash when he refused to shake the hand of opponent Kesrick Williams. On Sunday, however, it appeared that Australia all-rounder Glenn Maxwell may not have received the memo.

Maxwell landed in hot waters after footage showed him walking past Sarfraz following Pakistan's six-wicket win in the finals of the T20I tr-series in Zimbabwe against Australia.

Australia rebounded from an terrible tour of England to make the final of the triangular tournament only to fall at the last hurdle with Pakistan chasing down Australia's total of 183 with four balls remaining. Chasing a daunting target of 184, it was Fakhar Zaman who smashes a career-best 91 to guide his team to an emphatic win.

It wasn't all smooth sailing for Pakistan on Sunday as Zaman lost his opening partner Sahibzada Farhan, who was stumped off a wide on his first ball in global cricket. Fakhar Zaman and Malik did the job for us.

Pakistan didn't help themselves with some sloppy fielding, which included dropping Finch on the first ball he faced.

After taking two Pakistan wickets in the first four balls of the innings, Maxwell was smashed for 33 off his last two overs with Sarfraz among the batsmen to go after him.
