I'm devastated to miss out on England's shot at success: Woakes

England captain Eoin Morgan said the side strain suffered by all-rounder Chris Woakes is a cause of concern and it would be a big loss if he is forced out from the remainder of the ICC Champions Trophy.

Joe Root's career-best unbeaten 133 saw England to an eight-wicket win over Bangladesh in the opening match of the 2017 Champions Trophy at the Oval on Thursday.

Root later combined with skipper Eoin Morgan to secure the comprehensive eight-wicket victory with 16 balls to spare, giving England a flawless start to their bid to win a first global 50-overs trophy. "And it is a worry when he goes off the field and can't come back on and bowl".

"A scan has confirmed that Chris Woakes sustained a left side strain in yesterday's ICC Champions Trophy match against Bangladesh", the European Central Bank said in a statement on Friday.

A replacement has yet to be named, although it is believed that one of Middlesex duo Steven Finn or Toby Roland-Jones will be given the nod.

Capitals acquire Graovac from Wild for 2018 fifth-round pick
Graovac was drafted by Minnesota in the seventh round, 191st overall, in the 2011 NHL Draft. The 6-foot-5 Graovac first debuted with the Wild in 2014-15 as a 21-year-old.

England were waiting for the official sign-up on Finn's inclusion from the ICC's event technical committee on Saturday, having submitted the relevant documents after watching the 28-year-old's 2-49 as their Lions team beat South Africa A in Northampton.

Morgan, however, was proud of the way England's attack coped with Woakes's absence.

"It's not slow, it's actually at pace", Morgan said. "They haven't got a big 145 (kmph) plus bowler or a trick spinner that some of the other teams maybe do, and we can target that and go after them". England takes on New Zealand in their next group match while Bangladesh will play Australia in a must-win for them to have a chance to progress to the Semi-Finals.

"It's really frustrating", said Woakes. "I felt in a good space physically and mentally, and I was confident too because I bowled well out there", he said. "If we rushed him, he might have played the last game of the one-day series (against South Africa), but we didn't want to rush him". Bangladesh posted their highest ODI total against England, but it was still about 30 runs short of really testing the powerful home batting - BBC Sport.

"Bangladesh thought they had Morgan out for 22 when Tamim, running in from long-on, claimed a low catch but third umpire Bruce Oxenford ruled the ball had touched the turf".
