Chris Rogers faced the Australia pace attack with no ill-effects in the Edgbaston nets on Monday morning as he bids to prove his fitness for the third Ashes Test.

Rogers has undergone a series of tests to ascertain the cause of the dizzy spell which forced him to retire hurt early on the fourth and final day of the tourists' series-levelling victory at Lord's last week.

None of the tests have revealed a serious problem, and Cricket Australia has cited a balance problem in his inner ear after he was hit on the helmet by a short ball from James Anderson in his first-innings 173 in the second Test.
