Warner returns in style ahead of World Cup


//

Banned Australian star David Warner has done his World Cup hopes no harm by crashing a grade cricket century for Randwick Petersham on Saturday.

With his side chasing a rain-reduced 223 off 29 overs, Warner was at his imperious best, slamming a rapid 110 off just 77 deliveries against Penrith at Coogee Oval.

Warner and with fellow banned batsman Steve Smith, were both left out of Australia's upcoming One Day series against Pakistan, meaning that if selected, both will make their international returns in the World Cup opener against Afghanistan.

Both Smith and Warner have been on the road to recovery after a pair of elbow injuries, but Warner's century is a great sign for Australia that he will be fit for the World Cup in England.

While the absence of the two stars from Australia's squad to tackle Pakistan raised some eyebrows, Australian coach Justin Langer earlier alluded that the pair would get their match practice while participating in this year's IPL.

"From all accounts they should both be ready for the IPL, which is really positive," Langer said.

"Dave's probably a little more advanced but my understanding is they'll be ready to go in the not-too-distant future."

Warner's good form adds to an Australian top order that suddenly gained some form ahead of the World Cup with Aaron Finch and Usman Khawaja putting on 193 for the first wicket in Australia's win over India in the 3rd ODI on Friday night.
