Sky Bet

England all-rounder Paul Collingwood has undergone "successful" 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 veteran underwent the procedure to remove 'loose bodies' and correct cartilage damage after struggling with knee problems during the recent World Cup on the sub-continent.

The 34-year-old, who remains captain of the Twenty20 side, announced his retirement from Test cricket following England's Ashes success in Australia, in which he struggled with the bat.

He then endured a disappointing World Cup and was left out of the side for group games against Bangladesh and the West Indies and the quarter-final defeat to Sri Lanka.

An England and Wales Cricket Board statement read: "England and Durham all-rounder Paul Collingwood has successfully undergone routine arthroscopic surgery on his left knee to remove 'loose bodies' and correct cartilage damage.

"Collingwood will begin his recovery and rehabilitation period with Durham CCC and is expected to be available for Durham ahead of the NatWest International T20 and ODI series against Sri Lanka in June."
