Australia hit world record total in Sri Lanka T20
Australia hit a world record 263 against Sri Lanka in Tuesday's Twenty20 international in Pallekele in Sri Lanka, reports the Associated Press. Hard-hitting middle-order batsman Glenn Maxwell, who just had been ruled out for the upcoming South Africa tour because of poor form, hit a magnificent inning of unbeaten 145.

Asked to bat first, Maxwell smashed nine sixes and 14 boundaries for his 145 not out in 65 balls. Along with being his maiden century, it was the all-time second best individual score in T20s behind teammate Aaron Finch's 156.
