Australia Breaks Records As It Trashes Zimbabwe In Third T20I

AUS vs ZIM Live Score

Australia reached 229 for two, the highest total ever scored against Zimbabwe in a T20 worldwide as a slew of records were broken during Australia's 100-run victory.

Finch, who surpassed his previous best of 156 against England in 2013, blasted 10 sixes and 16 fours as Australia posted 229-2 from their 20 overs on their way to clinching a second-straight win in the Tri-Series after Billy Stanlake's four wickets fired them to an opening victory over Pakistan.

Along with his partner D'Arcy Short (46), Finch also registered the first 200-run stand in T20I history. He smashed six sixes and four boundaries during his 33-ball 68 runs knock.

The Australian captain broke his own record to score 173 in Harare.

Unfortunately, the opener couldn't register the highest score in any T20 game as he was dismissed hit-wicket on the penultimate ball of the innings, falling short by four runs.

Finch brought up his second T20I hundred at the end of the 14th over, taking just 50 deliveries. Currently, Chris Gayle holds the record for the highest score in T20s with the West Indian scoring 175 runs in the 2013 Indian Premier League. "They don't happen very often, so very pleased with it", Finch said after receiving his man-of-the-match award.

Behind Finch's two top scores, fellow Victorian Glenn Maxwell is next on the all-time T20I record list after he belted an unbeaten 145 against Sri Lanka in 2016.

"We started off quite well and just got on a little bit of a roll there so I think when you're playing on a really good surface like that in some conditions where the ball travels quite a bit, it was nice to get a few away".

172 - This is the highest score by any batsman in T20Is.

Short soon began to find the middle of his own bat, though, and took a brace of sixes off Ryan Burl's legspin to take his strike rate over a run a ball.
