During England's game with West Indies in the ongoing Cricket World Cup that was staged on Friday, the hosts were dealt a major blow as their opening batter Jason Roy and their skipper Eoin Morgan walked out from the ground after their respective injuries. Vice-captain and wicket-keeper Jos Buttler had taken over the captaincy duties in Morgan's absence. 

The Englishmen easily defeated the Windies by 8 wickets after knocking them all out for less than 215. Speaking at the post match presentation, Morgan provided an update on Roy's injury and even spoke about the sore back that he had suffered. 

“It’s the back. It’s a bit sore at the moment,” Morgan was quoted as saying.

“Jason Roy has potentially tweaked his hamstring. He’s gone for a scan and we have to see it for the next 48 hours. I’ve had back spasms in the past and we have to see over the next 24-48 hours. Everybody in our squad is vital, and we don’t want injuries,” Morgan said about Roy’s injury.

With three wins in four games, England have six points and are currently second on the points table.
