Morgan initially suffered the injury during England's Ashes tour in Australia earlier this year with the injury flaring up after the recent Twenty20 against India at Old Trafford.

England chief medical officer, Dr Nick Peirce, said: "Eoin†initially developed discomfort†in his right shoulder†during the Ashes tour in the winter and has been managing†the injury†until now with a conservative program.†

"Unfortunately there has been an acute flare in his pain which has not responded to treatment.†

Peirce added: "This is a chronic injury†and†predominantly†effects†Eoin's diving and throwing.†

"He now requires a progression in his treatment and†will undertake further specialist assessment in the next week before a decision on his forthcoming treatment will be determined."
