England will be without versatile left-hand batsman Eoin Morgan for the remainder of the One-Day International series due to an ongoing shoulder injury.

Morgan first suffered the injury during the Ashes tour of Australia earlier this year and it flared up again during the Twenty20 International win over India at Old Trafford.

"Eoin initially developed discomfort in his right shoulder during the Ashes tour in the winter and has been managing  the injury until now with a conservative program," England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) chief medical officer, Dr Nick Peirce said.

"Unfortunately there has been an acute flare in his pain which has not responded to treatment.
 
"This is a chronic injury and predominantly effects Eoin's diving and throwing. He now requires a progression in his treatment and will undertake further specialist assessment in the next week before a decision on his forthcoming treatment will be determined."
