Zim v Aus highlights today – Zimbabwe TNS 2018 (tri-nation series) third twenty/20 match from Harare Sports Club (Zimbabwe) Tuesday 3rd July 2018. Australia batted first and scored 229 runs in 20 overs with two wickets down. AJ Finch (c) scored 172 runs off just 76 deliveries. DJM Short scored 46 off 42 balls. AJ Finch (c) smashed sixteen boundaries and ten maximums in his innings. When his wicket dismissed then it was 19.4 full and wide outside off stump, and Finch tries to cut it past point. He’s overbalanced and falls over, and ends up hitting his bat onto his off stump. The ball’s dislodged, and Finch has to go! Take a bow, sir! The highest T20I score ever by a batsman, having broken his own world record. 228/2. He scored the highest total of the shortest format in cricket history. The second highest score is also scored by AJ Finch against England in 2013.
Toss: Zimbabwe chose to bowl.
