Australia forged history by registering the first-ever 200-run partnership in the shortest format of the game.
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. He was finally dismissed hit wicket in the last over for 172 in just 76 balls, smashing a total of 16 fours and 10 sixes.
Chasing a small a target of 119 in 20 overs, Australia lost their first wicket on 35 after a firing start by skipper Aaron Finch who lastly remained unbeaten with a quick-fire fifty to seal the deal with 55 balls to spare.
Finch was aiming for the record of highest individual Twenty20 score which is now held by West Indies dasher Chris Gayle who piled on 175 for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL.

Finch and fellow opener D'Arcy Short put on 223, another world record. Blessing Muazabani managed to get the wickets of Aaron Finch (172) and D'Arcy Short (46). The 31-year-old just needed 50 balls to bring up his hundred, his second in T20Is.
Finch broke his previous record when he hoisted Mpofu for a six over extra cover in the 19th over. Finch is the 2nd player after Chris Gayle to hit 10+ sixes in a T20I innings on two different instances.
Finch needed just four runs to set a new all-time individual T20 record, but he couldn't eclipse Chris Gayle's 175* for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL in 2013. It's coming on the bat quite nicely.
"When I was a bit younger I had a chance to be really pushing my case for a few years and I probably had 18 to 24 months of really lean red-ball cricket", Finch said after his record-breaking innings. The highest individual score against Zimbabwe was Mohammad Shahzad's 118 not out.
