Aaron Finch smashed 172 off only 76 balls and broke his own world record of highest individual score in a T20 global as Australia crushed Zimbabwe by 100 runs in Zim-Pak-Aus tri-series on Tuesday.

Finch was aiming for the record of highest individual Twenty20 score which is now held by West Indies dasher Chris Gayle who piled on 175 for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL.

The performance smashed the previous record of 156 runs that Finch posted against England in 2013.

New Zealand's Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson held the previous T20 global world partnership record of 171, set against Pakistan in 2016.

She gained hundreds of social media followers, too, after an endorsement from Ocasio-Cortez was retweeted more than 10,000 times. I completely disagree with her solutions, but she is listening to her community. "She was unbelievable ", Blueglass said.

"Just one of those days where a few things went my way", Finch said after his record-breaking knock as Australia amassed 229 in their 20 overs.

His innings at Harare Sports Club came from only 76 balls and included 10 sixes and 16 fours. Simon Mire top-scored for Zimbabwe with 28 runs.

During his knock and partnership with D Arcy Short for the opening wicket, they put together 223 runs for the highest partnership in T20I cricket. D'Arcy Short was the second highest scorer in the innings with a steady 42-ball 46.

The best players at this World Cup - players like Luka Modric, Isco and Juan Quintero - fit into their teams and make them better. But Uruguay conceded their first goal of the World Cup after Pepe header.

Australia have now won two games on the trot following from a disastrous tour of England, and Finch suggested that the change of scenery and opposition had made a big difference.

The Australian captain broke his own record to score 173 in Harare.

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

"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".
