Injured Morgan included in England ODI squads

Injured Morgan included in England ODI squads

Morgan's county Middlesex confirmed he suffered the injury when he was fielding during the Royal London One-Day Cup match against Somerset on Sunday.

Sam Billings will be included against Scotland to deputise for wicketkeeper Jos Buttler, and seamer Tom Curran will bolster the squad by one when he is added to the ranks to face Australia.

England limited-overs captain Eoin Morgan expects a "young and hungry" Australia will be "galvanised" by the ball-tampering scandal that rocked world cricket when the old rivals meet in a one-day worldwide series next month. The ball hit him on the top of the ring finger of his right hand. This match will also see Afridi make a return to worldwide cricket on a one-off basis having last played for Pakistan in the World T20 in 2016.

Meanwhile, Billings has been named as the replacement for Morgan.

England squad v Scotland: EJG Morgan (Captain), MM Ali, JM Bairstow, SW Billings (wkt), AD Hales, LE Plunkett, AU Rashid, JE Root, JJ Roy, BA Stokes, DJ Willey, CR Woakes, MA Wood. "It's not a huge concern, it's one that hopefully we can manage after a week when the swelling goes down", he said.

"It is not a bad crack but it is bad enough to keep him out of tomorrow's Middlesex game and the World XI game", Andy Flower, standing in as England's director of cricket as Andrew Strauss takes a family break, said.

Shahid Afridi - who will be playing his last worldwide match - held the record for the fastest One Day global (ODI) century for a period of 18 years; a 37-ball ton that shot him to fame at the inception of his career. In 2017, several stadiums were damaged due to the hurricanes in the region.

The hard-hitting batsman tweeted: "It's a great honour to be leading the ICC World XI side, that too for such a good cause".

Former Pakistan allrounder Shahid Afridi will lead the ICC World XI side against Windies in the one-off T20I at Lord's on May 31 after England limited-overs skipper Eoin Morgan pulled out of the contest with a fractured finger.
