Rogers gets through nets session

Birmingham - Australia opener Chris Rogers came through a nets session against the tourists' pace attack with no visible ill-effects at Edgbaston on Monday as he aimed to prove his fitness for the third Ashes Test.

The 37-year-old left-hander succumbed to a sudden bout of dizziness during the second Test at Lord's last Sunday and had to leave the field as Australia completed a 405-run thrashing of England to level the five-match series at 1-1.

A week of tests in London revealed nothing more serious than a balance problem in the inner ear, thought to have been caused when he was hit on the helmet by a short ball from James Anderson at Lord's in his first-innings 173 - Rogers's Test-best score.

Rogers, who plans to retire after the Ashes, missed the three-day tour match at Derby completed on Saturday where Shaun Marsh - who replaced him in Australia's recent 2-0 series win in the Caribbean after he suffered a concussion while batting in the nets - made a first-innings hundred in a rain-affected draw.
