Last night Australia set a new ODI record in Harare as they dismantled Zimbabwe by 198 runs with more than 10 overs to spare. Mitchell Marsh and Glenn Maxwell fashioned a 109 run partnership off just 54 balls which was the catalyst for their ground record first inning total of 6/350.
Australia managed an impressive run rate of seven an over, with Maxwell leading all scorers with 93 off 46 balls.
Throughout the beat down Australia belted 15 sixes and 27 fours – none more notable than Mitchell Johnson’s six-ball that punctured a hole in the commentary box window!
Didn’t mean to give you guys a scare up there in the Com box @SuperSportTV Need Chris Gayles arms to get it higher!!
