England opener Jason Roy will miss their next two World Cup matches against Afghanistan and Sri Lanka. Roy pulled up a hamstring during their eight-wicket win over West Indies on Friday and since then has been carefully monitored.

Roy, 28, will sit out in their clash against Afghanistan on Tuesday and Friday's match against Sri Lanka, as England will continue to assess him on ongoing basis.

Roy’s absence would be a huge sigh of relief for the Lankans as he has been terrific from in this year’s tournament. He has hit 315 runs in three innings in the tournament at an average of 71.66, including a superb 153 against Bangladesh.

Meanwhile England skipper Eoin Morgan has been declared fit for tomorrow’s clash against Afghanistan. Morgan suffered a back spasm in the same game that Roy got injured.

Against Afghanistan, it seems likely that James Vince will open the batting in what would be his first World Cup match, while Moeen Ali - who has been omitted for the past two games - could slot into the middle order if Morgan is ruled out.

Moeen may also come into the side as a second spinner if England opt to alter their recent tactic of playing four frontline pace bowlers.
