England captain Eoin Morgan has sustained a small flake fracture to his left index finger but expects to be fit for his side’s opening World Cup fixture against South Africa on 30 May.

The 32-year-old will, however, miss his side’s warm-up match against Australia in Southampton on Saturday.

Morgan took the knock to his finger during catching drills on Friday.

“There’s a very small fracture in there but I’m good to go,” Morgan, speaking to www.cricketworldcup.com
