Billy Stanlake has produced the second best figures by an Australian in Twenty20 internationals

Australia have been sent into bat in their tri-series Twenty20 match against Zimbabwe after captain Aaron Finch lost the toss.

They go in with an unchanged line-up from the team that smashed Pakistan by nine wickets on Monday where fast bowler Billy Stanlake and Finch starred.

Australia can almost lock up a spot in Sunday's final if they get the job done against the hosts at Harare Sports Club on Tuesday.

Zimbabwe were thrashed in their opening game on Sunday against Pakistan.

AUSTRALIA: Aaron Finch (capt), D'Arcy Short, Travis Head, Glenn Maxwell, Nic Maddinson, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey (wk), Ashton Agar, Andrew Tye, Jhye Richardson, Billy Stanlake.

ZIMBABWE: Solomon Moire, Chamu Chibhabha, Hamilton Masakadza (capt), Tarisai Musakanda, Peter Moot (wk), Elton Chigumbura, Ryan Burl, Tendai Chisoro, Chris Mpofu, John Nyumbu, Blessing Muzarabani.
