England captain Eoin Morgan will miss the third one-day international against the Netherlands due to a groin injury.

The England skipper has been in poor form, he was dismissed for a second duck on Sunday, while he has been managing a groin problem having previously struggled with long-standing back and knee issues.

The England and Wales Cricket Board said Morgan's absence was "precautionary" after he felt tightness in his groin, which he initially tweaked while playing for Middlesex in May.

In his absence, Jos Buttler will lead the side as they look to wrap up a 3-0 series win.

England’s next white-ball match will be the T20I series against India at Southampton on July 7.
