England's Jason Roy is having a second scan on his torn hamstring and is out of the Australia match on Tuesday.
England face Australia, India and New Zealand as they look to seal a Cricket World Cup semi-final spot on home soil, and the 28 year-old is likely to be back to full fitness in time for their final group game - and could be risked against India on Sunday.
Roy returned to nets training on Monday for the first time since sustaining the injury but Tuesday's clash at Lord's, live on Sky Sports Cricket World Cup, has come too early for him.

"Jason went for a scan this morning and it is all positive news, (but) he won't be fit for tomorrow," captain Eoin Morgan said.
"We'll monitor his progress in the week. To put one game on it (for Roy's return) I don't think is sensible, let's just see how it goes.
"It's Jason Roy, of course he's a big loss. He's an outstanding performer for us. But I'm confident we have the batting covered."
Roy injured his hamstring against the West Indies on June 14 and subsequently sat out England's rampant victory against Afghanistan and their surprise defeat to Sri Lanka.
The opener's replacement James Vince has made starts in both the games he has featured in against Afghanistan (26) and Sri Lanka (14) before losing his wicket.
However, Morgan has no concerns over the Hampshire batsman's form and backed him to come good in the further opportunities he has now been afforded.
"James Vince is an extremely talented, gifted player," Morgan added. "You can see that just watching him. We've every faith in him to go on and get a score at some stage."
