Tour match, Adelaide, day three of three: South Australia 247-7 dec & 164-2 v England 415 - match drawn
England's bowlers endured a frustrating end to their final Ashes warm-up match against South Australia which ended in a draw in Adelaide.
Conditions were not favourable for England's fast bowlers
Spinners Monty Panesar and Kevin Pietersen were the only wicket-takers as the hosts reached 164-2 in their second innings.
England had earlier been bowled out for 415 with Andrew Flintoff making a steady 47 and Sajid Mahmood a rapid 41.
The first Ashes Test begins on Thursday at the Gabba in Brisbane.
Panesar's solitary wicket could count against him as coach Duncan Fletcher and Andrew Flintoff decide on Thursday's starting XI.
According to BBC cricket correspondent Jonathan Agnew, Giles could now be seen as favourite to take the spinner's spot.
South Australia batsmen Matthew Elliott and Daniel Harris shared an opening partnership of 94 until left-hander Elliott clipped Panesar to mid-wicket where James Anderson leapt to pluck a brilliant right-handed catch above his head.

Elliott, who hit eight boundaries in his 55, was dropped by Pietersen low at backward point off Anderson when on nine in the eighth over.
Cameron Borgas then swept off-spinner Pietersen high to substitute Ashley Giles at deep mid-wicket to depart for 27.

Harris finished unbeaten on 71 after wicket-keeper Geraint Jones missed a difficult stumping chance off Pietersen when on 68.
Despite making England's breakthrough, Panesar took just one wicket in conditions that suited spinners, while seamers Flintoff, Anderson, Matthew Hoggard and Mahmood failed to take a wicket in the 30 overs they bowled on an unresponsive pitch.
Tail-ender Mahmood entertained the crowd with some big shots
However, England did have some good news concerning bowlers when Steve Harmison was deemed fit enough to come on as a fielding replacement.
Ed Joyce, called up to replace Marcus Trescothick, also got the chance for some practice in the field.
Meanwhile, South Australia bowler Shaun Tait allayed fears about his fitness by returning to bowl six overs on Sunday.
The paceman, who is in Australia's 13-man squad for the first Test, left the field on Saturday with cramp in his right thigh and calf.
He finished with the best figures among the home side's bowlers with 3-87.
Jones was the first man out when England resumed their innings, edging a catch to Mark Cosgrove off a Daniel Cullen off-break for 33.
Flintoff was clearly intent on getting some batting practice, spending two-and-a-half hours over his 108-ball innings.
He was finally bowled for 47 trying to slog spinner Cullen Bailey.
Mahmood batted vigorously, hitting two sixes in his 46-ball knock, but was stumped after wandering down the wicket and missing a swing at one of Darren Lehmann's slow left-arm teasers.
England's first innings was ended just before lunch when James Anderson swept a Bailey leg-break onto his right boot, with wicket-keeper Shane Deitz doing well to catch the ricochet.
