Eoin Morgan

A recurrence of a shoulder injury that affects Eoin Morgan's throwing and diving means he will play no further part in the NatWest Series

England batsman Eoin Morgan was today ruled out of the remainder of the NatWest Series due to an ongoing right shoulder injury.

Morgan first suffered the injury during England's Ashes tour of Australia earlier this year, with the injury flaring up after the recent NatWest International 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.”

England later confirmed they will not be calling up a replacement for Morgan.
