England captain Eoin Morgan should be fit for the start of the Cricket World Cup despite breaking a bone in his left index finger on Friday. Morgan sustained the injury when he dropped a catch in practice ahead of Saturday’s warmup match against Australia in Southampton.

“There’s a very small fracture in there,” said the left-handed batsman. “I’ll miss the game tomorrow unfortunately but, as regards the first game of the tournament, I should be good to go,” he added, referring to England’s match against South Africa at The Oval on Thursday.
