PERTH: Explosive batsman Eoin Morgan is a serious doubt for the World Cup due to a fractured finger, England cricket officials said Saturday, deepening the sideís injury crisis.
A statement from the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) said Morgan had been ruled out of the seventh and final One-day International against Australia at the WACA Ground in Perth on Sunday.
Morgan joins a growing injury list at the end of an arduous Ashes tour that has run beyond three months and which England coach Andy Flower has blamed for the spate of injuries.
The ECB statement said a final decision on Morganís participation in the World Cup would be made once a specialist in Britain has assessed the injury.
