While Roy will be out of action for the next few games with a hamstring injury, captain Eoin Morgan - who had a sore back in the last fixture - hopes to be available for the clash, even though it would all depend on how he "pulls up". "You normally get a good indication the following day", Morgan said after the victory against West Indies.

For Afghanistan, the mindset would be to acquit themelves well despite being overmatched by the hosts in all departments.

Himself in doubt for Tuesday's game but Morgan insisted there is no need to hit the panic button just yet.

Morgan, a doubt for this game because of a back spasm suffered on Friday, only arrived at the crease at the end of the 30th over when England were 164-2.

Apple will release two 5G-ready iPhones in 2020, according to analyst
But by 2020, perhaps the prospect of embedding a camera and the necessary sensors beneath the display will be less daunting. On the other hand the large iPhone will grow from a 6.5-inch OLED to a 6.7-inch one, likely reaching massive size.

In Morgan's absence, the captaincy would pass to Jos Buttler, while Moeen Ali - who missed out against West Indies - might be the likeliest player to step into the side. Afghanistan made three changes, bringing in Najibullah Zadran, Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Dawlat Zadran.

Playing in their second World Cup, bottom-placed Afghanistan lost all four of their matches till now to South Africa, Australia, Sri Lanka and New Zealand respectively.

Match starts at 3pm IST.
