London: Eoin Morgan`s World Cup place is in doubt after the England batsman suffered a fracture to the middle finger of his left hand.

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) said on Saturday Morgan would return to Britain to see a specialist after an x-ray revealed the fracture.

A decision will be taken on his place in the squad after the 24-year-old, one of England`s most destructive batsmen, has seen the specialist.

England play the final match of their one-day international series against Australia on Sunday.

The World Cup begins on Feb. 19.
