Southampton: England suffered a scare as fast bowler Mark Wood walked off the field with a left foot discomfort against Australia during a World Cup warm-up match at the Ageas Bowl on Saturday.

"He will continue to spend some time with the medical team before a decision is made on whether he will return to the match," ICC quoted an England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) statement.

England will kick off its World Cup campaign against South Africa in the curtain raiser on 30 May at The Oval.
