Pakistan famously won the recently concluded T20I tri-series in Zimbabwe by defeating Australia in a thrilling game on Sunday.
The Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman had his hand exchanged ready for a handshake but Maxwell appeared to ignore it. The players of both the teams gave an awesome performance.
Social media users lashed out at the Australian all-rounder over his actions.
In the early hours of Monday, Maxwell took to Twitter to issue a statement in order to explain his stance on the matter.
"Not shaking hands with Pak captain after winning the series it's not a great example set by Glen Maxwell plus kids are watching his behaviour & looking up to him".
"Congrats to Pakistan on their win yesterday, Fakhar Zaman and Shoaib Malik were unstoppable!"
"In regards to the incident shown post-match, it appears unsportsmanlike, and certainly not the way I play the game", he added.
Coming to the game, Pakistan beat Australia in a high-scoring thriller to win the triangular series.
Australia rebounded from an very 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.
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.
However, a career-best 91 from Fakhar Zaman helped them recover and chase down the total with four balls remaining.
