A fractured finger has ruled Eoin Morgan out of Thursday's fund-raiser Twenty20 International between ICC World XI and Windies at Lord's, the International Cricket Council confirmed on Tuesday (May 29).

It is learnt that Morgan fractured his fingers during Middlesex's game against Somerset at Taunton.
