Australian opener Chris Rogers is expected to be fit for the third Ashes Test at Edgbaston. He collapsed at the Lord's stadium due to a sudden bout of dizziness in his previous match.
The veteran batsman was struck on the helmet by a James Anderson delivery on the second day of the Lord's Test, but kept on batting before he was dismissed on his Test-best 173. However, he was forced to retire hurt on 49 on day four.
AdvertisementAustralian team doctor Peter Brukner said that Rogers' condition is certainly improving and the batsman has seen a specialist to help determine the cause of his dizziness. The initial scans have cleared Rogers of any serious damage, adding that they are awaiting the results of further tests.
The team doctor also said that the most likely diagnosis would be a delayed ear problem related to being struck on day two of the Test match. He insisted that this is something they could manage in the lead up to the third Test at Edgbaston on July 29, 2015.
Rogers had previously missed two Tests against the West Indies in June 2015 after suffering concussion following a blow on the head during training.
