Aaron Finch breaks his own record for the highest score ever in T20 global cricket.

Aaron Finch and felow opener DJM Short also recorded the highest partnership of 223 the first 200 plus score by any team in T20Is.

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

"I was playing good one-day cricket for Australia and I couldn't put the runs on the board in four-day cricket".

He and opening partner D'Arcy Short's stand of 223 was the highest-ever global T20 partnership, with Short very much the silent partner with a 42-ball 46.

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. D'Arcy Short was the second highest scorer in the innings with a steady 42-ball 46.

Finch brought up his second T20I hundred at the end of the 14th over, taking just 50 deliveries.

After toying with Zimbabwe bowlers, Finch told the host broadcaster, "It feels good".

Finch broke his previous record when he hoisted Mpofu for a six over extra cover in the 19th over.

The 124 runs Finch scored in boundaries in this match are the 2nd highest in a T20I game behind 128 during his innings of 156 in 2013. It's coming on the bat quite nicely. 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.

Finch was finally out hit wicket in the final over, seeing him fall short of the all-time T20 record but set a new record for an individual score in a T20 global. "I took the strike from (D'Arcy) Short a bit, but that kind of innings for him will also help him".
