Canberra: England captain Alastair Cook's dry summer in Australia continued on Tuesday when he was dismissed second ball in a 50-overs tour match against a Prime Minister's XI.

Cook took a single from the first ball he faced after winning the toss and batting at Manuka Oval. But he edged his second ball from 37-year-old retired Test fast bowler Brett Lee to wicketkeeper Peter Hanscombe.

Cook scored only 246 runs in 10 innings as his team slumped to a 5-0 defeat in the Ashes Test series and was out for four, third ball, in the first of four one-day internationals on Sunday.

Both he and England were looking to Tuesday's match as a chance to rebuild some form after six-straight losses in the Tests and one-day matches.
