Collingwood back in contention
Saturday 16 April 2011
The England all-rounder Paul Collingwood has undergone surgery on his left knee and is expected to be fit for the Twenty20 and one-day internationals against Sri Lanka in June.
The Durham man underwent the procedure to remove "loose bodies" and correct cartilage damage after being hampered by knee problems during the recent World Cup on the subcontinent.
The 34-year-old, who remains captain of the Twenty20 side, announced his retirement from Test cricket following England's Ashes success in Australia after struggling for form with the bat.
He also endured a disappointing World Cup and was left out for the group games against Bangladesh and the West Indies, as well as the quarter-final defeat to Sri Lanka.
