Eoin Morgan was unable to participate in England's nets session

An England and Wales Cricket Board spokesperson confirmed that the left-hander would go under the knife, although a recovery time is not yet known.

Morgan suffered the injury during the Champions Trophy semi-final against South Africa on June 19 and had attempted to play through the pain.

A decision was made to have an operation, however, after he was hampered by the problem during Tuesday night's five-run defeat to New Zealand in the opening NatWest Twenty20 international.
