Broad Sits Out Due To Injury
Stuart Broad will be out of the one day international with Australia due to a neck injury
. He will miss the Rose Bowl game so that he can rest a neck injury.
The all rounder strained his neck on Friday at the opening match of the series and was ruled out of the second game at Lord's on Sunday.
He is hoping to join the squad on Thursday and later the fourth of the seven match series on Sunday. England, who trail 2-0, have seamer Graham Onions in their squad but Joe Denly is still out with a knee problem.
The home side may elect to recall Yorkshire leg-spinner Adil Rashid, who bowled 10 economical overs and made an unbeaten 31 in the first match at The Oval but was left out of the team defeated at Lord's.
Brett Lee has now been declared as fit after missing the Ashes. He believes that England will struggle to cope without their main player Andrew Flintoff. England have some other great bowlers but what Andrew brings to the game is that X-factor," said Lee. "You look at the great players around the world, not only in cricket, but at Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods and David Beckham, they have all got that aura. "Andrew Flintoff has definitely got that.
He brings that to the game and quite possibly when he is not around that aura that he would bring to the team is not there." Looking ahead to the remainder of the limited overs series he said: "We have obviously got a bit of momentum going into this third match and momentum in a series is huge." Paul Collingwood has played a major part in the England this year and has not missed one match.
He says that the team must rally in the one day internationals with Australia. "The public are just interested in the Ashes and everything else doesn't matter too much," Collingwood said. "To us, as players, this is an important stepping stone.
We want to keep improving our one-day cricket." Collingwood insisted that the players were determined not to rest on their laurels. "We played well, we won the Ashes, this period now could be a time when you start relaxing again or you have gone over the peak," the all-rounder said.
"Whether you are mentally tired or not, you have to put in the performances."
England have been disappointing recently with their 50 over cricket and seem to be living in the Ashes glory for now. However this has been noted in the world rankings by dropping to sixth place.
Their quest for a first major one-day international trophy will resume at the Champions Trophy in South Africa on 25 September, but they will be looking to ensure the series with Australia is still alive by the time of the final match at the Riverside only five days earlier.
"Thankfully, it is a seven-match series so there is time to come back. We were always going to have to win four games so that's still the case," said Collingwood.
