Johannesburg: All-rounder Craig White is to remain with the England World Cup squad, it was announced on Thursday.White has been struggling with a side injury that cut short his involvement in England's pre-World Cup tour of Australia.

But, after White's latest fitness test on Friday, an England spokesman said, "Craig White remains with the England squad and will have further intensive treatment to his left side." England should have opened its World Cup campaign against Zimbabwe in Harare on Thursday but boycotted the fixture on safety grounds. It is now due to start the event against minnows The Netherlands in Sunday's Group 'A' game in East London.
