England call on Carberry as Collingwood cover
England have called up Hampshire batsman Michael Carberry as cover for Paul Collingwood for the third Test against South Africa in Cape Town.
Collingwood dislocated his left index finger on the fourth morning of the second Test, which ended with an innings-and-98-run victory for England today.
X-rays revealed Collingwood had broken no bones, and England are optimistic that he will still be fit to take part at Newlands in the next Test of the four-match series, starting on January 3.
Collingwood made 91 in England's 574 for nine declared at Kingsmead and was not required to bat again, after the tourists bowled South Africa out for 133 in their second innings.
Uncapped 29-year-old Carberry made a century for England Lions against New Zealand at the Rose Bowl in May last year, having joined his third county Hampshire from Kent in 2005.
He had a prolific 2009 in county cricket, making more than 1,200 championship runs at an average of almost 70.
The left-handed top-order batsman was rewarded with a place on the England Performance Programme trip this winter to Pretoria, where he recently made a hundred against the Gauteng Strikers.
