Morgan cleared to lead England, Plunkett returns

Morgan will miss the Twenty20 fixture at Lord's after chipping the end of his right ring finger

Eoin Morgan was initially named as the captain of the side, but the left-handed batsman has pulled out following a fractured finger. Further, the likes of Sam Curran and Tymal Mills have also got added to the World XI squad.

Subsequent x-rays revealed a crack at the top of the ring finger on his right hand.

It is believed the problem will sideline Morgan for seven to 10 days, meaning he should be fit to play in England s one-day global against Scotland at Edinburgh on June 10.

England have rested wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler for the match in Edinburgh, with Sam Billings drafted in as replacement in the 13-man squad.

"I think they will be ready, and with one eye on the World Cup they will come with a strong performance", said Morgan, speaking at an event to mark one year until the start of Cricket World Cup 2019.

England's limited-overs captain Eoin Morgan has been included in the one-day global (ODI) squad to face Australia and Scotland despite suffering a finger injury, the England and Wales Cricket Board said on Wednesday.

All the proceeds from the fund-raiser at the Lord's will be used to redevelop stadia in the Caribbean, damaged due to hurricanes past year.

The Scotland clash is followed by five ODIs and a T20 against Australia before the end of next month. "It is not a huge concern, it is one we can hopefully manage past in about a week", Andy Flower, ECB's stand-in director, was quoted as saying by the ICC.

The charity match will help raise funds for five cricket grounds in the Caribbean that were damaged by hurricanes Irma and Maria - James Ronald Webster Park in Anguilla, Dominica's Windsor Park Stadium, Sir Viv Richards Stadium in Antigua, A.O. Shirley Recreation Ground in the British Virgin Islands and Carib Lumber Ball Park in St Maarten. He will be replaced as captain by former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi, while Morgan's compatriot Sam Billings will take his place in the squad.

Good news for Shahid Afridi fans!
