EOIN MOR­GAN will be fit to skip­per Eng­land in the one-day in­ter­na­tion­als against Aus­tralia de­spite a bro­ken fin­ger.

Mor­gan has pulled out of cap­tain­ing the World XI in to­mor­row’s T20 clash with West Indies at Lord’s – but will be ready when FIGHT­ING BACK: Jimmy An­der­son and Stu­art Broad (above) prac­tise yes­ter­day Eng­land start their ODI sched­ule against Scot­land on June 10.

Mor­gan said: “I have a small frac­ture in the ring fin­ger of my right hand.

“It’s dis­ap­point­ing but it’s not the worst news that could have come through.

“It’s a week to 10 days to get the swelling down in the fin­ger and then pro­tect it as we go on. So it’s a re­lief that I’ll be ready, yes.”

Sam Billings comes in for the rested Jos But­tler for the game against Scot­land, while Tom Cur­ran will be added to the squad to face the Aussies. SQUAD: v Scot­land, v Aus­tralia,
