India Loses First World Cup Warm-up Match

India got all out for 265 in 45.1 overs, chasing Australia’s first innings score of 371 in the first warm-up match.

Glenn Maxwell and David Warner lifted Australia to a 106-run win 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.

Ajinkya Rahane made 66 and Shikhar Dhawan 59 as India was dismissed in reply. India captain M.S. Dhoni suffered the indignity of a first-ball duck caught by Mitchell Starc from the bowling of Pat Cummins, one ball after Suresh Raina was run out, to effectively end India's bid for a drought-breaking win.
