Maxwell, Marsh star in big Aus win

Glenn Maxwell and Mitchell Marsh both fell agonisingly short of centuries but still helped Australia to a record one-day international tally at the Harare Sports Club as they crushed Zimbabwe by 198 runs on Monday.

Australia's 350 for six off 50 overs beat by 10 runs the highest total for any team at the venue in an ODI and marked a satisfying start to preparations for the World Cup they co-host with New Zealand early next year.

Zimbabwe could only muster 152 in reply, bowled out with more than 10 overs left in the opening match of the triangular series.
