Birmingham:

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. (David Warner - Australia's Future Vice-Captain?)

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 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.
