Australian T20 star Aaron Finch has got his Big Bash League (BBL) contract with Melbourne Renegades extended for two more years. He had one year left on his existing contract.

Finch is with Renegades since 2011 and in 2012, he became the captain of the team and was the Big Bash League player of the year. 

The 31-year-old had recently smashed the highest individual score in T20I history. The Australia T20I captain broke his own record by hitting 172 from 76 balls against Zimbabwe in Harare. Finch's previous best was 156 against England in 2013. He became the first and only player to score 150 plus in two T20I innings.

Finch's opening stand of 223 with D'Arcy Short is also a record stand for T20 internationals for any wicket.

The Aussie was the second fastest to score 1000 runs in T20I history in 29 innings just behind Virat Kohli and was also the fastest Australian to achieve this record.
