Finch dismantles Zimbabwe with splendid solo act

Clinical from Australia! If they were ruthless with the ball yesterday, it was the bat that did the damage today. Skipper Finch's record-breaking century all but settled the deal at the half-way mark itself. Zimbabwe needed a miracle to even make a match of it and though their top order played a few adventurous strokes, the challenge was always going to be beyond them.
Australia's bowlers shared the spoils evenly with Tye and Agar being the pick of the bowlers. So, that's two successive pounding wins for Australia on successive days that virtually books them a spot in the final. Their NRR is sky-high and it will take something practically improbable to knock them out from hereon. Some questions for Zimbabwe to answer, the bowling of course suffered but their batting lacks depth as well. Interesting to see how they deal with it when they face Pakistan tomorrow.
