Shoaib Akhtar wants Glenn Maxwell to apologise to Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed

Australia will aim to polish off glitches before the final against Pakistan Australia will aim to polish off glitches before the final against Pakistan

After a half-century from Fakhar Zaman and a late cameo from Asif Ali took Pakistan to its biggest total of the series, 18-year-old Shaheen Afridi took three wickets to extinguish Australia's hopes of victory. And with the matter getting out of hand, Maxwell took to Twitter to reveal his side of the story.

Pakistan and Australia have lost one game each in the tri-series. But Maxwell not shaking hands with Sarfraz has certainly not gone down well with a certain section of the cricketing fraternity.

Pakistan opener Fakhar Zaman clinched the second spot in the International Cricket Council (ICC) T20 rankings, after his match-winning 91 against top Australian side in the T20 tri-series final on Sunday.

Andrew Tye was the best of Australia's bowlers, taking 3-35 off his four overs.

Finch too found some terrific touch in the African nation, taking his worldwide T20 run tally past 400 with his mammoth 172 against Zimbabwe, before coming back to earth with scores of 3 and 16 in Australia's last two games.

With 278 runs in five matches in the series at an average of 55.60, Zaman was also adjudged Man of the Series.

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.

Australia's D'Arcy Short is at 10th place.

Short put on 95 for the first wicket with Finch (47 from 27 balls) despite him struggling for momentum early in his innings.

He still remains a unsafe prospect for any opposition, though, and his will be a prized wicket for the Pakistanis.

"I think Fakhar Zaman has been outstanding and a real thorn in our side. He's also been consistent in this format for a long time", Finch said ahead of the Sunday's final.

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

Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell has been accused of poor sportsmanship on social media after appearing to snub a handshake with Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed following the loss in the T20 final in Zimbabwe.
