100-run win over Zimbabwe on Tuesday.
Aaron Finch of Australia now holds the world's top-two Twenty20 global innings after his 172 onslaught in Harare.
The previous biggest partnership in T20Is was shared between Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson against Pakistan in 2016 as they accumulated 171 runs.
18 - Aaron Finch became the 18th batsman to score three consecutive T20I fifties.
Four overs later, his 15th four took Australia's score to 200, and Finch then moved beyond 150 with a swipe to deep midwicket. His knock of 172 runs from 76 balls with 16 fours and 10 sixes was laden with boundaries and records on the way.
He plundered 16 fours and 10 sixes in the highest individual innings in T20 global cricket, which only ended when he overbalanced chasing a wide one and hit wicket off the penultimate delivery of the innings. It was rather fitting that Finch bettered his own record of 156 runs with a six by mauling Chris Mpofu over extra cover. 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. The wicket played a lot better than we thought.
16 - The 16 fours Finch hit in this game are the most by any player in a T20I inning. "I took the strike from (D'Arcy) Short a bit, but that kind of innings for him will also help him".
Australia captain Aaron Finch raises his bat on reaching his century during the third match played between Australia and hosts Zimbabwe.
"I was the captain of the opposition when he got that (On Chris Gayle's 175)".
