Ankle operation for Hollioake on return

England A 230 & 106-4 Queensland 298 Match drawn
Click to follow
Adam Hollioake joined the list of England A's injured tourists as the party completed their successful Australian trip with an expected draw here yesterday.

Queensland, resuming on 195 for 5, were dismissed for 298 with Craig White taking a career-best 6 for 66, and claiming his 150th first-class wicket in the process.

Hollioake will undergo an operation on his left ankle when he returns, joining Dean Headley (hip) and Mark Ealham (broken finger) in facing an anxious winter.

Hollioake's injury did not stop him from playing a major part in the tourists' success, both as a captain, bowler and batsman as England shrugged off their opening defeat against New South Wales 2nd XI to finish the trip with a nine-match unbeaten run.
