Morgan was a late omission for Saturday night's match at the MCG after straining his right groin at training on Friday.

His side struggled in his absence, setting Australia a target of 138 which they achieved with 27 balls to spare.

The injury could prove to be a major blow for England with stand-in skipper Jos Buttler admitting he was unsure whether Morgan would be available for the New Zealand leg of the series.

England will face New Zealand in Wellington on Tuesday and again in Hamilton the following Sunday requiring victory in at least one of those games to ensure they make the final.

"That's the beauty of a tri-series. We still have a chance to make that final," Buttler said.
