England captain Morgan ready for 'young and hungry' Australia in ODI series

Morgan, England's limited-overs skipper, had been set to captain the side. Pakistan veteran all-rounder Shahid Afridi has been named as the new skipper. While Sam Billings will take Morgan's place, all-rounder Sam Curran and fast bowler Tymal Mills have been drafted to the squad as well. The ball hit him on the top of the ring finger of his right hand.

Eoin Morgan is relieved he will be ready to captain England in their upcoming one-day internationals against Scotland and Australia despite a broken finger.

Shahid Afridi - who will be playing his last worldwide match - held the record for the fastest One Day global (ODI) century for a period of 18 years; a 37-ball ton that shot him to fame at the inception of his career.
