    2.5 plays back and edges a lifting ball to 1st slip, great start from Tremlett - good sharp catch 4/1
    20 short, pulls in the air and Monte takes a blinder in his right hand diving, what a catch!! 58/4
    13.4 the frustration ends and he nicks a good length ball to the keeper, well deserved wicket there 41/2
    15 plays back and is squared up by one, an appeal for caught behind - appears Umpire Reiffel may have given him out caught of the hip 48/3
    22.5 drives at one that swings in, leaves a massive gap between bat and pad and loses his middle stump 66/5
    44.3 tries to pull, gets a touch down the leg side, disappointing end to his innings 118/6

    62.5 plays back when he might have got forward, inside back onto the top of middle stump - well bowled 177/7
    80.1 so the new ball is taken, O'Keefe has a swing at a short one and it goes straight up in the air - Australia A all out 230. 7 overs to go for today 230/10
    64.3 gets forward and edges onto the pad, flies to short leg and he is gone this time - inswing did him there, Reiffel's decision matters little 179/8
    78 nice outswinger and he drives and edges a regulation catch to the 'keeper - some good resistance there from Cameron 224/9

    4.5 drives hard and gets an edge, well taken in the gully at the second attempt 20/1
    38 aims to loft over mid on, doesn't really get hold of it - well held by mid on running back 124/3
    13.3 short again, tries to pull again and gets a top edge straight down the throat of Cameron at deep backward square leg 37/2
    40.3 short, tries to pull and it goes in the air to mid off where it is taken, very close to the way he was dismissed by George in Adelaide - might need to give the pull shot away against Johnson and co in the important stuff - well bowled Cameron 127/4
    44 gets one to turn a little, plays forward and the ball hits the top of off stump - great stuff as KP's bat isn't straight enough in defence 137/5
    104.4 short again, tries to pull, gets a bit of bat onto it and an easy catch for the 'keeper - ends a fine stand of 240 377/6

    136.4 tries to sweep and actually falls over, hit on the pad and Umpire Reiffel gives him out - it appears that he got some glove on it, unlucky 493/9

    22.4 shortish, tries to pull and drags it back onto the stumps - hitting middle and leg, ends a pretty good knock 66/1
    60.2 short and he cuts in the air, upper edging to Strauss who reaches high and takes a terrific catch at frist slip 185/4
    22.5 plays back and gets an edge low to the keeper, a first ball duck and the Yorkshireman is on a hat-trick 66/2
    28.5 comes forward and is beaten by one that keeps a bit low, double failure for Fergsuon - won't see him at the Gabba for the First Test 84/3
    93.1 aims a big slog sweep and gets a touch on the way through to the keeper 276/8
    62.2 looks to play to the on-side, hit on the pad in front of middle and leg - big shout and Paine is on his way 191/5
    62.3 shoulders arm first ball and he is gone - losing his off stump, terrible misjudgement there from Smith 191/6
    89.5 advances a looks to hit him over mid on, miscues to mid off where a easy catch is pouched - Monte finally has a wicket in his 45th over of the game 269/7

Match Notes

  • 'We have the belief' - Collingwood

    It's well documented that England lost all five Tests last time they visited Australia, but Paul Collingwood knows only too well that they also failed to win a tour game

  • Hughes determined to halt England

    Phillip Hughes is not part of Australia's squad for the Gabba Test, but he's still keen to do his part to help the national cause less than a week from the start of the Ashes

  • England cruise to 10-wicket win

    Cameron White made a consolation century but Australia A could not prevent England completing a morale-boosting 10-wicket victory five days before the first Ashes Test

  • Bell shows off new assertive side

    Ian Bell is a much improved cricketer from his last tour of Australia, and it intent to dominate the spinners by dancing down the track

  • Bell dominates Australia A with unbeaten century

    Ian Bell sounded an ominous Ashes warning for Australia with a dominant century on a rain-affected second day in Hobart
