Australia's David Warner celebrates reaching his 100 during the Cricket World Cup match against Afghanistan on March 4, 2015Merciless Australia hit the highest World Cup score in tournament history Wednesday when they piled-up 417-6 against Afghanistan while Pakistan continued their revival with a 129-run win over the UAE. At the WACA in Perth, four-time champions Australia went past the previous World Cup best of 413-5 made by India against Bermuda in 2007. It was also the third 400-plus total in the last six days after South Africa twice went through the barrier -- 408-5 against the West Indies and 411-4 in the game with Ireland. David Warner made Australia's highest World Cup individual score of 178, beating the 158 of Matthew Hayden against West Indies at Antigua in 2007.

Mugabe holds a booklet during his 91st birthday celebration in Victoria FallsTwo former allies of Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe whom he fired last year are suing the 91-year-old leader and his ZANU-PF party for unfair dismissal and for breaching the party's constitution, court papers seen by Reuters showed. Mugabe, who has ruled Zimbabwe since independence in 1980, changed the party's constitution ahead of ZANU-PF's December congress to allow him to appoint his two deputies himself rather than having them elected by the party. Rugare Gumbo, once the ZANU-PF spokesman, and Didymus Mutasa, the party's former secretary general, say in their lawsuit, which also targets a former party chairman, that these changes were illegal. The lawsuit, filed at Zimbabwe's High Court, also says Mugabe breached the law by removing a provision requiring one of the deputies to be a woman and by appointing his wife Grace to lead the ZANU-PF women's wing.
