Matt Prior hit an unbeaten century as England survived an early collapse to draw the tour fixture with Victoria after a rain-affected final day.
The visitors slumped to 55-4 as Clint McKay and Jayde Herrick made a mockery of the struggles endured by England's Ashes bowling hopefuls in Melbourne.
But Prior settled the tourists and was 102 not out when the match was called off with England on 211 for six.
Chris Tremlett, Tim Bresnan and Ajmal Shahzad are all in contention to replace the injured Stuart Broad in the third Test in Perth.
But all failed to take a wicket during the second day of the match. Who would you pick to play in Perth?
