He experienced further problems on the eve of the World Cup, pulling out of a warm-up game against Australia.

"It's nothing too serious, he just pulled up a little bit sore from the game in Cardiff he s the only concern at the moment," Morgan said on Thursday. <p></p> <p></p>"Mark is going to have a fitness test in the morning. If it is still sore, we probably won't take a risk." <p></p> <p></p>Morgan said all teams at the World Cup would need to look after their quicks in particular. "It's part of the plan, because they are fast bowlers. It will happen to other bowlers throughout the tournament," he said. <p></p> <p></p>"We're well aware of that. We will have to manage them as we would normally, as we do with Chris Woakes if there's back-to-back games," Morgan added. "It's not a problem, it's just what happens." <p></p> <p></p>Wood's place could go to <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/moeen-ali/news/">Moeen Ali</a>, who did not play against Bangladesh, should England again decide to play a second specialist spinner alongside leg-break bowler Adil Rashid.
