London: Eoin Morgan hopes to make a quick return from the fractured finger that has ruled the England limited overs' captain out of his appearance for the Rest of the World against the West Indies.
Morgan will miss the T20 fixture at Lord's after chipping the end of his right ring finger.
It is believed the problem will sideline Morgan for seven to 10 days, meaning he should be fit to play in England's one-day international against Scotland at Edinburgh on 10 June.
The Scotland clash is followed by five ODIs against Australia next month.
Morgan's county Middlesex confirmed he suffered the injury when he was fielding during the Royal London One-Day Cup match against Somerset on Sunday.
The batsman was set to captain the World XI in a game which is being held to raise funds for stadiums in Dominica and Anguilla damaged by hurricanes last year.
Andy Flower, the England and Wales Cricket Board's stand-in director, said on the ICC's official website: "It is not a bad crack but it is bad enough to keep him out of tomorrow's Middlesex game and the World XI game.
"It is not a huge concern, it is one we can hopefully manage past in about a week."
Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi will skipper the World XI in the absence of Morgan.
