Aaron Finch was probably having the time of his life in Dambulla against Sri Lanka in the fourth ODI of the ongoing series as he smashed an 18-ball 50. His feat is now also in the record books as he went on to become the joint-fastest Australian to get a half century. He has now joined the club of Simon O'Donnel and Glenn Maxwell.
Here are the other records that tumbled during the match:
