Tour match, Adelaide
Australia A 327-6 beat Zimbabwe 208 by 119 runs
Michael Clarke warmed up for the VB Series with runs and wickets against the same Zimbabwe side who will be one of Australia's opponents.
Clarke goes into the triangular series with big scores behind him
The series kicks off with a day-night international on Friday between India and Australia.
And Clarke, skippering Australia A on Wednesday, hit 93 off just 71 balls after winning the toss.
He showed his prowess with the ball too, taking 2-16 in just three overs to wrap up a 119-run win.
Australia A won the toss and hit 327-5, with 115 from Marcus North the biggest contribution.
Andy Blignaut's four overs cost 49 runs but none of his colleagues' figures looked particularly clever.
Zimbabwe could only play with 10 batsmen, minus Stuart Carlisle, who had injured his thumb while fielding and despite half-centuries from Grant Flower and Sean Ervine they were never in the hunt.
Zimbabwe's first fixture in the VB Series is against Australia in Sydney on Sunday.
They will be without Craig Wishart for that match, who will be recovering from a knee injury.
Wednesday's match was their final warm-up. They won their first game, against Australia A in Perth, but were comfortably beaten by Western Australia on the same ground.
