The all rounder Paul Collingwood has been recalled to the England cricket team, aliong with a fit-again pace bowler Ryan Sidebottom for the third test against South Africa starting tonight at Edgbaston.

The Durham fast bowler Steve Harmison, who was hoping for a recall after being named in an extended squad of 13, has been left out along with along with Stuart Broad.

South Africa are set to play Andre Nel in place of fast bowler Dale Steyn, who broke his thumb in the second test and is taking two to three weeks rest.

South Africa lead the series 1-nil after their 10 wicket win in the second test at Headingley.
