England will miss the services of pace bowler Liam Plunkett in the final two One-Day Internationals against Australia following a hamstring injury.

Plunkett, who picked four wickets from the first two games, suffered the blow while bowling in his second over in the third game in Sydney and did not return to bowl.

"It was really unfortunate, Liam is going to be out for around 10 days," Morgan said. "He’s going to stay with the squad for his rehabilitation.

"He’s been a huge part of our progression over the past two years. We’re looking at the T20 series for when he will come back so there will definitely be a change for tomorrow."

The fifth and final game of the series will be played in Perth on 28th January following which the two teams along with New Zealand will compete in a Twenty20 International tri-series between 3rd and 21st February.
