Australia's rise up T20 rankings stalled by defeat to Pakistan

Sarfaraz extended his hand towards Glenn Maxwell, who ignored to shake hands with him intentionally.

Viewers from around the world were quick to point out Maxwell's supposed snub on social media, and there were also widespread rumours that Sarfarez told Maxwell to "f*** off' in the exchange".

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.

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.

Meanwhile, in the ICC T20I Team Rankings, Pakistan have retained the top position with their tri-series victory while India have overtaken Australia to take second place after clinching their three-match series against England 2-1.

With 278 runs in 5 matches in the series at an average of 55.60, Zaman was adjudged Man of the Series. Meanwhile, D'Arcy Short jumped 18 places to No.10 with 652 points, also his career-best.

But the left-hander had played a pivotal role a match earlier against the home side with a 42-ball 46, ensuring captain Aaron Finch received the lion's share of the strike in their 223-run first-wicket stand, the biggest partnership in T20 worldwide history. While Jhye Richardson enjoyed the good fortune of having Haris Sohail clip his first delivery straight to square leg to depart for a golden duck, the Pakistan top order were able to feast on a generous helping of short stuff. He still remains a unsafe prospect for any opposition, though, and his will be a prized wicket for the Pakistanis.

"I thought we should've got up around 200", Finch said after the game. "I thought we should have got around 200 and we just kept losing wickets, which stalled the momentum", he said. But Fakhar Zaman along with Sarfaraz Ahmed and Shoaib Malik took the game away from the Aussies.

Finch was given a first-ball reprieve when he was dropped by Malik in the deep after top-edging a hook, and several misfields allowed any pressure with the new ball to be immediately dissipated.

In between those two wickets, Faheem Ashraf castled Travis Head (7) to leave Australia three down in the first seven overs.
