Video Highlights Aaron Finch 156 Runs England v Australia 1st T20
Video Highlights of England vs Australia 1st T20 Match 29 August 2013. Australia's Aaron Finch set a new world record for the highest individual Twenty20 international score as he made a stunning 156 against England at Southampton on Thursday.
Finch surpassed the previous record of 123 set by New Zealand's Brendon McCullum against Bangladesh at Pallekele in September last year.
Remarkably, Finch got off the mark, reached his 50, hundred and 150, with sixes.
Finch was also on course to break the record for the fastest T20 international century before eventually reaching his hundred from 47 balls, two outside the mark set by South African Richard Levi.
The 26-year-old Victorian faced just 63 balls, including 11 fours and 14 sixes -- 128 of his runs coming in boundaries -- in an innings that ended when he was bowled by Jade Dernbach.
His 14 sixes were also a world record for the most in any T20 international individual innings.
Finch's century was only the 10th in all T20 internationals, the first by an Australian and the first by any batsman in England.
