England suffer Morgan injury scare ahead of World Cup

Eoin Morgan has been taken to hospital for an X-ray after injuring his left index finger during training at the Ageas Bowl. The England captain was undergoing fielding drills with teammates at the ground ahead of a warm-up match against Australia which will take place on Saturday.
The England and Wales Cricket Board do not know the full extent of the injury given it only happened a matter of hours ago. A spokesperson for the ECB said: “Eoin Morgan took a knock to his left index finger fielding this morning. He is going to hospital after practice Given how revolutionary Morgan has been as skipper of this England side, who go into the World Cup as favourites for a first 50-over title, his absence, even for a few games, would be a huge blow. Jos Buttler, as vice-captain, would be the one to step up, though there may be a reluctance to heap more pressure onto him as not only the wicket-keeper but the team’s marquee batsman.international crick Eoin Morgan has been taken to hospital for an X-ray after injuring his left index finger during training at the Ageas Bowl.
