Eoin Morgan to miss rest of India ODI series due to injury
England batsman ruled out of remainder of series after shoulder injury flares up in wake of Old Trafford match
England batsman Eoin Morgan has been ruled out of the rest of the one-day international series against India due to an ongoing right shoulder injury.
Morgan first suffered the strain during England’s Ashes tour of Australia earlier this year – and the persistent injury flared up after the recent Twenty20 fixture against India at Old Trafford.
England chief medical officer, Dr Nick Peirce, said: “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. Unfortunately there has been an acute flare in his pain which has not responded to treatment.
“This is a chronic injury and predominantly effects Eoin’s diving and throwing. He now requires a progression in his treatment and will undertake further specialist assessment in the next week before a decision on his forthcoming treatment will be determined.”
