Australia hones WCup preparations, beats India by 106 runs

ADELAIDE, Australia (AP) -- Rapid centuries by Glenn Maxwell and David Warner lifted Australia to a 106-run win over India in a warmup match Sunday that built up its prospects for the Cricket World Cup while leaving India winless in the dry Australian summer.

Maxwell slammed 122 from 57 balls before retiring and Warner hit 104 from 83 deliveries as Australia made 371 in 48.2 overs after winning the toss and batting. India was all out for 265 in 45.1 overs in reply.

Australia is the world's top-ranked one-day side and World Cup favorite and the all round quality of its performance Sunday helped substantiate that billing.

India's World Cup prospects appear bleak as it remained without a win in three tests and five one-day matches in Australia this summer while losing veteran fast bowler Ishant Sharma to a knee injury.
