Adjust Comment Print

Finch powered his way to 172, beating his own world record high score in Twenty20 Internationals.

Finch gave another stellar display of power hitting in the T20 tri-series match against Zimbabwe, slamming 172 off 76 balls in Australia's total of 229-2 batting first.

The 31-year-old put on a record opening stand of 223 with fellow opener D´Arcy Short, bettering the 171-run stand between New Zealanders Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson against Pakistan in 2016.

Trump attacks ‘abolish ICE’ movement on the morning of massive nationwide protest
The letter is likely to bolster the growing movement in Democratic politics and activist circles to abolish Ice. I gotta say it. "I don't think ICE today is working as intended", she said, to Cuomo's apparent surprise.

Four overs later, his 15th four took Australia's score to 200, and Finch then moved beyond 150 with a swipe to deep midwicket. Yeah I did know about it ( holder of two highest individual T20I scores), it's just one of those days where few things went my way.

1 - Finch might be dismissed in the last over via hit-wicket falling short of the all-time T20 record score but became the first Australian to be dismissed via hit-wicket in the T20I cricket. The right hander scored 50 runs from 22 balls before bringing up his second T20I hundred in 50 balls.

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

Son Heung-min honored to face Germany, still wants to win
Germany lost on Wednesday despite dominating in possession - 69 percent to 31 percent - and leading South Korea in shots on goal. The official had to check with the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) before confirming the goal, but it was good.

2 - Aaron Finch has just struck 10+ sixes in a T20I innings for the second time, the most by any batsman. Only Chris Gayle, with 175, is ahead of him in the list.

Finch broke his previous high-scoring record of 156 which he had set against England back in 2013. When Finch departed, rather bizarrely by being hit wicket, he had become the highest run scorer in T20I.

Finch's previous record knock stood for almost five years: 156 off 63 against England at Southampton in 2013.

Rajon Rondo agrees to one-year deal with Lakers
