BRISBANE, Australia (AP) — Batsman Usman Khawaja has pressed his claims for a place in Australia's team for the first Ashes cricket test against England with a century for Queensland in the final of the domestic one-day cup.

Khawaja's dominant 104 came from 100 balls in Queensland's five-wicket win over New South Wales. He shared a 165-run opening partnership with Chris Hartley.

Khawaja's century followed half centuries in four of his six previous one-day innings.

New South Wales opener David Warner, who came into the match with three centuries in his last four innings and is a favorite for a test recall, was out for 14. Replays showed he fell to a catch off a no-ball bowled by Ryan Harris which was not called by the umpire.
