Eoin Morgan Injury Update: Eoin Morgan has been Ruled out the IND vs ENG ODI series with hand injury

Injury Updates

England captain Eoin Morgan sustained sustaining a split webbing between his thumb and index finger during the first ODI against India on Tuesday. It eventually required four stitches. The captain went through a fielding drill during training at the MCA Stadium on Thursday before declaring about his unfitness. He said, “I had the hand re-dressed before the start of training today but it quickly became apparent that I found myself protecting the injury and getting into the wrong positions to catch the ball.”

Morgan added, “There’s nowhere to hide on the field in international cricket these days, especially in limited-over formats so it didn’t require any great thought to make myself unavailable. It was a freak injury and it’s extremely frustrating but there’s nothing I can do about it. It’s now just a case of letting the cut heal.”

Livingstone said, “I’ve been waiting for this chance for a while now so really excited. India have played some really good cricket, the back end of the T20 series and the one-dayer the other day so it’s a great chance to test myself against one of the best teams in the world.”
