Chris Woakes and Moeen Ali have been ruled out of England's final Cricket World Cup 2015 match against Afghanistan on Friday, both players have suffered injuries during the 15-run defeat to Bangladesh on Monday.
Woakes has a left third metatarsal stress reaction (Foot injury around the 3rd toe) resulting in him walking around in a protective boot. Moeen has an abdominal strain on his left side hindering his ability to bowl and bat at his highest ability.
Scans revealed enough complications that would deem it necessary to remove them from immediate future games.
The upcoming Afghanistan game in Sydney has no effect on the competition, both teams are already eliminated. England have been knocked out the tournament as they were beaten by Bangladesh on Monday, no cricket trophies coming home.
We would still like to win this game but will the England team feel the strain when down two strong players?
