Eoin Morgan has been ruled out of England’s third and final one-day international against the Netherlands as a precautionary measure due to a minor groin injury.

Jos Buttler will captain the side as they seek a clean sweep over their opponents having wrapped up a series win on Sunday.

Morgan has registered consecutive ducks in the previous two matches, raising questions about his future as ODI skipper.

He admitted before the series got under way he was managing the injury, which he first suffered while on duty with Middlesex in the Vitality Blast last month.

Alongside left-arm seamer Reece Topley, he skipped Tuesday’s optional training session.

Missing the last ODI caps a forgettable past week for Morgan, who was out for a golden duck in England’s world record 498 for four last Friday before a seven-ball nought on Sunday.
