He provided a reading of 63 micrograms per 100 millilitres of breath - the legal limit in England is 35 micrograms.

"We're pretty confident about Mike. He's had a reasonable amount of time now and certainly all the signs from everyone, including from Mike himself, is that he's back to 100 per cent," head coach Stuart Lancaster said.

"He has to tick the final box and then I'm sure he'll be training on Friday. He has been symptom free since last week."

David Warner top-scored as Australia piled up the World Cup's highest ever total en route to victory by the widest margin in tournament history, against Afghanistan in Perth.

The co-hosts' 417 for six contained three outstanding innings, Warner (178) pacing himself and his team before upping the ante in a mammoth second-wicket stand of 260 with Steven Smith (95) after the early wicket of Aaron Finch - and then Glenn Maxwell (88) taking over.

Mitchell Johnson took four for 22 to ease them to a landslide 275-run Pool A win as Afghanistan were bowled out for 142 in 37.3 overs.
