Listing the cricketers with highest scores in T20Is by batting position
#2 Aaron Finch – 156 from 63 balls, for Australia against England at Southampton, August 2013
The highest score in the history of T20Is and the only 150 in the format was achieved by Aaron Finch, who produced complete carnage on 29 August, 2013 against a hapless England bowling attack who simply had no clue as to what hit them.
When you lose an opener in the second over, you don't expect a huge total. Let alone, 248. But thankfully for Australia, they had Aaron Finch, who simply carved the England attack to all corners of the ground.
Although he was dismissed in the 18th over, it was not before he had smashed 11 fours and 14 sixes and amassed a scarcely believable 156 off just 63 balls at a staggering strike rate of 247.61. Given the sheer volume of hits that crossed the ropes, it is fair to say that this record is unlikely to be broken anytime soon.Published 01 Aug 2016, 00:30 IST
