London (Agencies): England’s middle order batsman Eoin Morgan’s tweet brought some embarrassment for the English Cricket Board (ECB) as he revealed that the injury which forced him out of the World Cup was not as serious as first thought of.

Morgan expressed his joy over a possible early come back to the top level cricket on Twitter. He was ruled out of the sporting event because of his broken finger during the recently concluded one-day series against Australia.

"Some good news this morning. No need for an op on my finger. Pretty much healed. Will be back sooner than expected,” Morgan tweeted.

He was informed on February 7 that he would require a surgery to treat his fractured finger and was told to expect a six-week lay-off. Morgan was later replaced by Ravi Bopara, putting an end to his debut World Cup bid.

The ECB, however, reiterated the medical staff agreed to monitor the middle finger of Morgan's left hand after the player insisted he had only bruised it in Adelaide before playing ODIs in Brisbane and Sydney.

The board also insisted that Morgan would still need a few more weeks to recuperate and negated any chance of his early comeback.

To add to the English woes, reliable but out of form Paul Collingwood is also nursing an injury ahead of the mega-event.
