Powerhouse striker Aaron Finch put on a batting display never seen before in T20 cricket amassing the highest ever total of 157 as well as hitting a record breaking 14 sixes.
Finch's record-breaking innings saw Australia to a first competitive international win in 200 days as they beat England by 39 runs in the first Twenty20 international at Southampton on Thursday.
Man-of-the-match Finch's stunning 156, the highest individual score in all Twenty20 internationals, was the cornerstone of Australia's 248 for six, itself the second-highest team score at this level.
England, who wrapped up a 3-0 Ashes series win with a draw at The Oval on Sunday, unsurprisingly lost early wickets when faced with such a colossal chase and finished on 209 for six in this day/night fixture. Victory saw Australia go 1-0 up in a two-match series that concludes in Durham on Saturday.
