England batsman set to be sidelined

7:32 am on 10 September 2011

The England batsman Eoin Morgan is set to undergo shoulder surgery and will miss the upcoming one-day cricket tour of India.

The Dublin-born left-hander saw a specialist about the injury to his right shoulder and will now have an operation next week which will rule him out of all cricket for around three months.

England, who are currently playing a five-match one-day series against India at home, are due to play a series of return fixtures including five ODIs and one Twenty20 starting in October.

Morgan, who is England's Twenty20 vice-captain, led England to victory against his native Ireland in a one-off ODI last month.
