London, July 21: Australia will seek further specialist medical advice regarding the condition of Chris Rogers but do not believe the veteran opener has suffered "serious damage" after succumbing to a sudden bout of dizziness on the fourth day of the second Ashes Test at Lord's on Sunday.
Team doctor Peter Brukner indicated Monday it was possible that Rogers could take part in the third Test at Edgbaston starting on July 29.
After two overs' play on Sunday, Rogers crouched down by the side of the pitch and then sat motionless before eventually going off on 49 not out.
The 37-year-old left-hander played no further part in Australia's crushing 405-run win against England which levelled the series at 1-1, having helped establish their strong position in the match with a Test-best 173 in the first innings.
However, he was seen talking to team-mates on Australia's dressing room balcony later Sunday.
Brukner said Rogers's dizzy spell may well have come about as a result of a delayed reaction to being struck on the helmet by England paceman James Anderson while batting on Friday's second day at Lord's.    AFP
