Eoin Morgan has been ruled out of England's limited-overs tour of India to undergo surgery on an injury to his troublesome right shoulder

Eoin Morgan will undergo surgery for a right shoulder injury, ruling him out of England's limited-overs tour of India next month.

Morgan today saw a specialist and will undergo shoulder surgery in the next week which will rule him out of all cricket for 12 weeks.

ECB chief medical officer Dr Nick Peirce said: "After seeing a specialist today it has been confirmed that Eoin will require surgery to his right shoulder with the likelihood of repairing a chronic SLAP lesion.

"We have managed the injury to date with a conservative program but Eoin has now reached the stage where surgery is most appropriate progression of his treatment.

"Following the operation Eoin will undertake a rehabilitation programme ruling him out of all cricket for approximately 12 weeks. The recovery period is anticipated to see him return to full fitness ahead of England's tour of the UAE commencing in January."
