England's Paul Collingwood made it though a net session yesterday as he continued his battle to be fit for the third Test against South Africa, which gets under way tomorrow. The all-rounder, 33, dislocated his left index finger during the second Test win over the Proteas, but X-rays revealed there was no fracture. England have called up Michael Carberry as cover.
