England captain Eoin Morgan said Mark Wood’s latest injury problem did not mean he was facing the end of his World Cup. “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.

“Mark is going to have a fitness test in the morning. If it is still sore, we probably won’t take a risk.”

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.
