Aaron Finch batting onslaught helps break Williamson, Guptill T20 world record

Aaron Finch batting onslaught helps break Williamson, Guptill T20 world record

He plundered 16 fours and 10 sixes in the highest individual innings in T20 global cricket, which only ended when he overbalanced chasing a wide one and hit wicket off the penultimate delivery of the innings.

Australia, who defeated Pakistan in their opening match of the ongoing triangular T20 series, will today lock horns with host Zimbabwe at the Harare Sports Club.

Behind Finch's two top scores, Maxwell is next on the all-time T20I record list after he belted an unbeaten 145 against Sri Lanka in 2016. D'Arcy Short was the second highest scorer in the innings with a steady 42-ball 46.

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




Aaron Finch's 172 contributed 75.1 percent of Australia's total score, a new T20 record. The right hander scored 50 runs from 22 balls before bringing up his second T20I hundred in 50 balls.

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.

2 - Aaron Finch has just struck 10+ sixes in a T20I innings for the second time, the most by any batsman. Finch is the 2nd player after Chris Gayle to hit 10+ sixes in a T20I innings on two different instances. Shane Watson was the first when he scored fifties in three consecutive T20I innings in 2011-2012. Finch broke his own record of 156 he scored against England in 2013. This is the highest % of team's total scored by any player in a completed innings in all worldwide cricket (Men/Women). With his 172 runs, Finch also became the highest scoring captain in the format.
