Finch-led Australia tumble T20I records against Zimbabwe

Aaron Finch breaks International T20 record against Zimbabwe

Aaron Finch broke his own record for the highest individual score in a T20 worldwide by smashing 172 off 76 balls in Australia's 100-run win over Zimbabwe on Tuesday.

Finch broke his previous high-scoring record of 156 which he had set against England back in 2013.

Australia reached 229 for 2, the highest total ever scored against Zimbabwe in a T20I.

Australia´s Aaron Finch smashed his own record for the highest individual score in a Twenty20 worldwide on Tuesday, blasting 172 off 76 balls in a tri-series match against Zimbabwe in Harare.

Aaron Finch of Australia now holds the world's top-two Twenty20 global innings after his 172 onslaught in Harare.

Australian captain Aaron Finch powered his way to 172, a new world record high score in T20Is, and his opening partnership with D'Arcy Short put up 223, another world record.




Short eventually fell swinging across the line at fast bowler Blessing Muzarabani to be caught for 46, while Finch fell in freaky circumstances in the final over.

"Feels good. The wicket played a lot better than we thought". Short sliced a catch to wicket-keeper Peter Moor, and Finch tried to cut but was overbalanced and hit the stumps with his bat to be out hit wicket, three balls from the end.

In reply, Zimbabwe got off to the required flying start, taking 28 runs from Stanlake's opening two overs, but then Chamu Chibhabha (18 off 10 balls) chopped onto his stumps in Jhye Richardson's second over, and Stanlake returned to dismiss Solomon Mire (28 off 19 balls).

Tye took 3 for 12 as Australia inflicted one last record against the host Zimbabwe, who slumped to their largest-ever defeat in T20Is.

Australia have now won two games on the trot following from a disastrous tour of England, and Finch suggested that the change of scenery and opposition had made a big difference.

The third match of Australia and Pakistan in Zimbabwe T20I Tri-Series, 2018 is between Australia and Zimbabwe which is scheduled today.
