Australian cricket captain Aaron Finch has broken his own record to help Australia claim a 100-run victory over host nation Zimbabwe in the second game of cricket's Twenty20 tri-series. He moved beyond the previous world record T20I high score of 156, which he set against England 2013, with his ninth six. He also featured in a record-breaking 223-run first-wicket stand with D'Arcy Short, who made 46 as they raised the first double-century stand in a T20I.
Australia posted 229-2 in their 20 overs.
Finch's sparkling innings of 172 came off just 76 deliveries and included a stunning 16 fours and 10 sixes.
Top scorer Solomon Mire (28) struck three fours and a six in Billy Stanlake's first over before falling in the tall fast bowler's next over.

"The mood in the camp has always been really positive, and I think coming here we've brought that confidence that we had, but probably with a bit more self belief coming into a new tournament against two sides that we haven't played for quite a while compared to a team that dominated us last summer in Australia and then did so again".
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.
