Australia have set a new world record score in Twenty20 international cricket, hitting 263-3 against Sri Lanka in Pallekele.

All-rounder Glenn Maxwell hit 145 not out from just 65 balls.

It comes just eight days after England set a new record score in one day international cricket, making 444 against Pakistan – which also beat a record previously held by Sri Lanka.
