Eoin Morgan injury: England captain faces an injury blow while fielding as he walks off during England vs West Indies match at Southampton
The injury woes for England do not seem to end at all, as after Jason Roy, now their skipper Eoin Morgan too scampers off the field during the ongoing England vs West Indies match being played at The Rose Bowl in Southampton.
Now, this happened during the 40th over of the West Indian innings. England speedster Jofra Archer’s third delivery of the over was worked towards the mid-wicket region by the Windies all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite.
After fielding the shot hit by Brathwaite, Morgan, a few moments later was seen crouching, and apparently in quite some pain with regard to his left foot. He was seen limping off the field with the assistance of his physio and he looked visibly uncomfortable.
Morgan, has had problems with his hip in past, and might have something to do with the same. There is no official information from the English management as of now in this regard. Meanwhile, Jos Buttler has taken over the captainship duties.
Jason Roy, who was earlier injured cannot bat before No.7 in the batting order. And now with their No.4 batsman also being injured, it will be interesting to see how the English batting order fares up with their chase.
England in bigggg trouble here. Losing Roy and Morgan, two key batsmen, to injury. Poms play Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Australia and India all in the next two weeks. #CWC19

West Indies struggling
On the other hand, the Windies have had an ordinary outing with the bat at The Rose Bowl. They are all out for a paltry 212 in 44.4 overs, with some reckless batting once again. Nicholas Pooran was the highest scorer with his 63 off 78 deliveries.
From the English side, Jofra Archer and Mark Wood bowled exceptionally well picking 3 wickets apiece.
