Finch has gone past Ricky Ponting to name an unwanted record

Finch's 11th ODI hundred was his sixth against England, which means he now shares the Australian record for most centuries against one opposition with Ricky Ponting (New Zealand, India) and Adam Gilchrist (Sri Lanka). With 1,131 runs at an average of 51.40, the right-hander is one of six Australians to have scored 1000-plus ODI runs against their oldest rivals, and the only one in that group to average above 50.
Perhaps his most famous ODI hundred against England came in the opening match of the 2015 World Cup, a performance that helped Australia to a huge win and kick-started their charge to a fifth world title. But the balance of power has shifted dramatically in a little over three years since, with England now ranked No.1 in the world and hot favourites to take that crown from Austalia (ranked sixth) on home soil in around 12 months.
