Australia were ruthless against Pakistan in their opening clash

A slew of records tumbled as Australia took on Zimbabwe in the Twenty20 tri-series at Harare Sports Club on Tuesday, with the tourists' captain Aaron Finch setting a record score in Twenty20 Internationals.

172 - Finch's 172-run knock is the 2nd highest individual innings in all Twenty20 cricket behind Chris Gayle's unbeaten 175 against Pune Warriors in the 2013 IPL game in Bangalore.

At the time of this writing the Zimbabweans struck by the run onslaught had no answers and were reeling at 118/7 losing their top order cheaply and the tail enders staring at certain defeat. Hence it is predicted that Australia will win this match against Zimbabwe.

Belting 10 sixes and 19 fours in the devastating knock, Finch bypassed his own mark of 156 he set against England five years ago.

The Victorian superstar was eventually dismissed in a freakish manner, chasing a wide delivery and accidentally hitting his own stumps inadvertently. Finch is the 2nd player after Chris Gayle to hit 10+ sixes in a T20I innings on two different instances.

Four overs later, his 15th four took Australia's score to 200, and Finch then moved beyond 150 with a swipe to deep midwicket. "Disappointing not to be not out at the end".

It appeared Zimbabwe might make a fist of their huge chase when openers Solomon Mire and Chamu Chibhabha rushed past 40 in the fourth over, but once they were dismissed regular wickets quickly stalled the innings.

Australia carried on from where they left off against Pakistan on Monday after opening their campaign with a nine-wicket victory.

"The wicket played better than we thought".

Left-arm spinner Ashton Agar raced through four overs conceding just 16, while Andrew Tye's seamers were even more effective.

"So new opposition and new environment has made a difference here so far". "The wicket's very good as we know the ball travels here".
