Maxwell Refused To Shake Hands With Sarfaraz Ahmed

Sahibzada Farhan will replace Haris Sohail for the final against Australia

Glenn Maxwell has clarified the reports suggesting he snubbed Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed after Sunday's T20I tri-series final in Harare.

As Sarfraz Ahmed went in to shake hands with the Aussie players, Maxwell was captured on camera failing to meet the Pakistan skipper's extended hand. Other fans took aim at Maxwell on social media for his "uncalled for" actions and "poor sportsmanship".

Zaman combined with veteran Shoaib Malik (43 not out) for a fourth-wicket partnership of 107 as Pakistan passed Australia's total with four balls to spare - their highest successful run-chase in T20Is.

Australia rebounded from an bad 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. "Sad note to end our tour of Zimbabwe, but still plenty of positives to take out of it", Maxwell opened.

Explaining that he was on the lookout for the Pakistan captain after "a genuine oversight" from his part resulted in him not shaking hands with the opponent, Maxwell said that is not the way he plays his game.

D'Arcy Short (76) and captain Aaron Finch shared a 95-run opening stand in just 9.5 overs. However, a middle-order collapse saw Australia set Sarfraz Ahmed's side 184 to 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 worldwide cricket.

But the surprise success of opening the bowling with Glenn Maxwell's off-spin didn't last as Pakistan opening batsman Fakhar Zaman blasted a sublime 91 from 46 balls.
