Injured Roy to miss England's next two World Cup games

Trevor Bayliss and Moeen Ali- England ready to reshuffle as they prepare to welcome back Moeen Ali and hand James Vince his World Cup debut

According to the reports in the Telegraph, Jason Roy is suffering from a hamstring tear and thus will miss England's two matches of the tournament. Roy sustained his injury while sprinting after a ball in the covers during West Indies' innings, and underwent an MRI scan on Saturday in London, in which the tear to his left hamstring was confirmed.

When Hales was dropped from the World Cup squad after serving a 21-day suspension, Morgan said it was because of "complete breakdown in trust" between the batsman and the rest of the squad.

Meanwhile, England captain Eoin Morgan, who suffered a back spasm in the field against the West Indies, and like Roy did not bat in that match, will be assessed ahead of the Afghanistan clash and could yet play against the tournament minnows.

Morgan added: "It's not a conversation that we have had with Ed Smith or [coach] Trevor Bayliss". Even the hosts are plagued with the same issues now as their in-form opener Jason Roy has been ruled out of the action for two matches.

"It's not something that we've talked about -- we've not talked about replacing any player and that's a real positive within itself".

"But it's not about how many runs you score, being the one that stands out in terms of individual accolades, it's about building those substantial partnerships that win you the game, about us collectively getting the job done". "I think when any two players go down it is a bit of a worry but it is not panic stations yet".

In Morgan's absence, the captaincy would pass to Jos Buttler, while Moeen Ali - who missed out against West Indies - might be the likeliest replacement in the XI.

I did it!This wasn't the moment she heard Tiriac's comments, but we imagine her reaction may have been similar. The 23-year-old easily beat Vondrousova and won the game 6-1, 6-3.

"The response to the treatment has been very good, but we don't know how we'll pull up tomorrow", he said.

It is that flexibility and the quality of the players not now in the starting 11 including Tom Curran, Moeen Ali and James Vince that gives Buttler confidence.

Having won three of their four matches, England sit fourth in the points table.

Playing in their second World Cup, the bottom-placed Afghanistan lost all four of their matches till now to South Africa, Australia, Sri Lanka and New Zealand respectively.

Struck by a series of injury setbacks, England will look to get the combination right when they take on the low-ranked but spirited Afghanistan in their bid get closer to a semi-final berth, here on Tuesday.

The double setback is a blow to England after their most convincing victory of the World Cup to date.
