  • Finch, Stanlake lead Australia to nine-wicket win against Pakistan

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.

Finch and Short put on 223 for the first wicket, which topped Williamson and Guptill's previous highest T20 worldwide partnership for any wicket of 171 (unbroken) against Pakistan in Hamilton in January 2016.

2 - Aaron Finch reached his second T20I 150.

"Feels good. The wicket played a lot better than we thought".

Finch finished only three runs behind West Indian Chris Gayle's highest Twenty20 score of 175, which he hit in the 2013 Indian Premier League. The highest individual score against Zimbabwe was Mohammad Shahzad's 118 not out.

Spurs Rumors: Kawhi Leonard willing to sit out, wait for Los Angeles
In his seventh season with Sacramento, the Kings traded Cousins to the Pelicans at the All-Star break during the 2016-17 season. That's a tricky area to maneuver, so the Silver and Black might be better off finding a trade package before the season starts.

"It's nice to break my own record", said Finch.

"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.

Despite fears, no racism recorded midway through Russia's World Cup
Sweden and Switzerland have both performed admirably at the World Cup but neither should strike fear into English hearts. With every save the former Danish superstar erupted in wild celebrations, proud of his son's lightning reflexes and wit.
