White Century In Vain As England Complete Victory
England XI 523 (Bell 192, Collingwood 89) & 11-0 beat
Australia A 230 (Smith 66) & 301 (White 111) by 10 wickets
Tour game, Hobart
England completed victory over Australia A by ten wickets on the final day of their four-day tour match in Hobart despite Cameron White hitting a century.
White, skippering the A side, made 111 in 172 balls and Phillip Hughes 81 as they were bowled out for 301 in their second innings, which only just forced England to bat again.
Tim Bresnan returned four for 86 and left-arm spinner Monty Panesar picked up his first wickets of the tour by returning three for 63.
Tall pace bowler Chris Tremlet backed up his first-innings haul of four for 54 by taking three for 67.
Andrew Strauss then took a boundary off opening bowlers Mark Cameron and Peter George to steer England to 11 without loss and see them head into the opening Test in Brisbane on 25th November in good form and with wins behind them.
