Morgan ruled out of one-day series

Wednesday, 7 September 2011

SOUTHAMPTON: Eoin Morgan has been ruled out of the remainder of the one-day series against India due to the recurrence of a shoulder injury he first suffered on the Ashes tour after he felt “acute” pain during the Twenty20 international at the Old Trafford last week.

Due to the first One-day International (ODI) at Chester-le-Street being abandoned seven overs into England’s innings Morgan hasn’t batted again since the Twenty20 although did spend fifty overs in the field in Durham.

As yet there is no time frame or clear outline for Morgan’s treatment and that will be determined after he is assessed next week.

However, it would appear unlikely that he will be available for the two Twenty20 internationals against West Indies, at The Oval, later this month and, depending on the seriousness of the problem, may be a doubt for the one-day tour of India in October.

England aren’t going to name a replacement player with means a chance for Ravi Bopara in the middle order.

“Eoin initially developed discomfort in his right shoulder during the Ashes tour in the winter and has been managing the injury until now with a conservative program,” England chief medical officer, Dr Nick Peirce, said. “Unfortunately there has been an acute flare in his pain which has not responded to treatment.”
