England captain Eoin Morgan is expected to be fit in time for the hosts' World Cup opener against South Africa after he suffered a "small fracture" to his left index finger during a practice session on Friday.
Morgan was practising at the Ageas Bowl ahead of unofficial World Cup warm-up against Australia when he took a blow during catching drills.
There was relatively good news for Morgan after an X-ray showed the damage wasn't as bad as feared.
"England captain Eoin Morgan has sustained a small flake fracture to his left index finger," an ECB statement said.
"He will not take part in the match (against Australia), but is expected to make a full recovery and be available for England's opening ICC Men's Cricket World Cup match against South Africa at The Oval on Thursday, May 30."
