Jos Buttler will captain England’s team against the Netherlands, replacing Eoin Morgan, who will not be able to play due to a sore groin; watch the third ODI live on Sky Sports Cricket from 9.50 on Wednesday

Eoin Morgan has fought for form and fitness during England’s ODI series in the Netherlands.

Eoin Morgan has been ruled out of England’s third ODI against the Netherlands due to a groin injury.

The English captain has endured a miserable series after going down for a second duck on Sunday, while he has dealt with a groin problem after long back and knee problems.

Jos Buttler will be the captain of the team as they look for a clean sweep over their opponents who have made a series victory on Sunday.

Morgan has endured back to back in the previous two matches, which has raised questions about his future as ODI captain.

Liam Livingstone has supported England’s white ball captain Eoin Morgan to return to strike form, in the belief that he is a touchdown from returning to his best.

Morgan’s last half-century, regardless of format, came a year ago against Sri Lanka.

talking with sky sport Ahead of the third and final ODI on Wednesday, Livingstone praised England’s World Cup-winning captain and said he feels a point is coming soon.

“I think what’s been forgotten is that Morgs is an incredible leader,” said Livingstone. He is the leader of our team and everyone knows he is a goal away.

“I’m sure the point will come very soon and it will be up and running again.”

England have already achieved a complete victory in the series, leading 2-0 with one left to play, and in the first of their victories, the visitors recorded a world record of 498-4 in Friday’s premiere.

Jason Roy has also supported Morgan in rediscovering his contact with the bat shortly after the England captain won two consecutive ducks against the Netherlands.

“It’s the changeable nature of the sport,” Roy said. “If you’re behind the eight ball, it’s pretty tough, but he’s a great worker, a great guy, so I’ll definitely cheer for him.”

Roy added: “He is the captain of our team and he wins matches, so I think that means more to him than his points, which makes him more special to play.”

“He’s going to be fine. He’s going to be fine.”
