Seamer Murtagh injured for England ODI

ESPNcricinfo staff

Tim Murtagh, the Ireland seamer, has been ruled out of his side's upcoming ODI against England on May 8. He sustained a hamstring tear while playing for his county Middlesex against Durham at Lord's in the County Championship. He will undergo an MRI scan on Tuesday to evaluate the extent of his injury.

Murtagh, 33, was slated to make a comeback to international cricket this Friday, after missing the World Cup due to a foot injury.

Cricket Ireland chose not to name a replacement because they initially named a 14-man squad instead of the usual 13 and will pick their final XI from the available players.
