GRAHAM THORPE helped to dig England A out of trouble against Queensland when their scheduled four-day match at Caloundra finally began after a day and three-quarters had been lost to rain. Thorpe and Martyn Moxon, the captain, shared an unbroken fourth-wicket partnership of 54 to steer the visitors to 64 for 3 at the close off 32 overs.
