Craig White

Paul Collingwood
Right-handed batsman
Right-arm off-spin bowler

Born: 26 May 1976
County: Durham
Test appearances: 0
Debut: N/A

Collingwood is the fifth player to be called into England's injury-hit squad.

The all-rounder, something of a one-day specialist, was playing grade cricket in Melbourne when the call came following injuries sustained by John Crawley and Michael Vaughan.

He will step in to the breach should either man be ruled out and will also give England additional options with his bowling.

His versatility has helped him develop into an integral part of the one-day squad and he will be keen to capitalise on this opportunity to add a Test debut to his haul of one-day caps.
