Australia T20 skipper Aaron Finch has broken his own record for highest ever score in the format with a stunning 172 from 76 deliveries in Harare.
 
Sent in to bat by Zimbabwe in Australia's second match of the T20 tri-series, opener Finch unleashed on the depleted hosts, racing to a half-century from 22 deliveries before bringing up his second T20I century from 50 balls.
 
Zimbabwe had no answers for the powerful right-hander, who struck a maximum in the 19th over to better his previous mark of 156, scored against England in 2013, as Australia posted 2-229.
 
Finch's blitz finally ended in bizarre circumstances, with the Australian skipper out hit wicket chasing a wide delivery from Blessing Muzarabani on the penultimate ball of the innings, ending a knock that featured 16 fours and 10 sixes. 
 
He was just three runs short of the highest ever 20-over score - a mammoth 175no scored by Chris Gayle in the Indian Premier League in 2013.
