Eoin Morgan in England ODI squad for Scotland and Australia matches despite fractured finger

England captain Eoin Morgan has been named in the ODI squad for matches against Scotland and Australia despite recently fracturing his finger.

Morgan sustained the injury to the ring finger on his right hand while fielding during Middlesex’s Royal London One-Day Cup clash with Somerset on Sunday.

He was due to skipper the ICC World XI squad against the Windies at Lord’s on Thursday, but was forced to withdraw from the T20 match which is looking to raise funds to restore five major Caribbean cricketing venues that suffered hurricane damage last year.

Morgan features in England’s 13-man squad for the ODI against Scotland in Edinburgh on Sunday, June 10, with Jos Buttler rested on the recommendation of Morgan and coach Trevor Bayliss.

Sam Billings will replace him on that occasion, but Buttler will return as part of a 14-man squad for the five-match series against Australia, which starts at the Oval on Wednesday, June 13.

Fast bowler Liam Plunkett comes in to replace Craig Overton, while Tom Curran returns for the Australia series with Billings dropping out.

England will play in Scotland for the first time since May 2014, when they defeated the hosts by 39 runs in Aberdeen.

Currently ranked number one in the ODI World Rankings, England defeated Australia 4-1 in a five-match series back in January.
