SHOWS: MANCHESTER, ENGLAND, UK (JUNE 17, 2019) (ICC - Broadcasters: NO RESALES Digital: NO RESALES) 1.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) EOIN MORGAN, ENGLAND CAPTAIN, SAYING: "Yeah, I certainly believe Jason (Roy) will play again in this tournament.

At the moment he's going to be assessed continuously over the course of the next week.

He's out of the next two games.

So we'll see how he pulls up after that.

2.

WHITE FLASH 3.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) EOIN MORGAN, ENGLAND CAPTAIN, SAYING: "As we know with injuries, people respond differently to treatment and medication, so it's a matter of seeing -- giving him enough time to allow him to get himself back into the tournament." 4.

WHITE FLASH 5.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) EOIN MORGAN, ENGLAND CAPTAIN, SAYING: "Drastically improved.

I've had extensive treatment and medication the last two days, which have helped me no end.

I've had a small hit in the nets, and hopefully be fit to play in the morning.

It will all depend on how I pull up but aiming to play tomorrow." 6.

WHITE FLASH 7.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) EOIN MORGAN, ENGLAND CAPTAIN, TALKING ABOUT THE POSSIBLE RECALL OF ALEX HALES, SAYING: "I think it would be a case of speaking to Ed (Smith - England selector) because ultimately Ed gets the final call and say on who is involved in the 15, and then addressing how that would look in a changing room setup, yeah.

8.

WHITE FLASH 9.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) EOIN MORGAN, ENGLAND CAPTAIN, SAYING: "It's probably their strongest component as a team.

It's a challenge that we're going to have to overcome.

Pretty much every time we play against an Asian team, that's the case.

You look over at where they are practicing, they are practicing against quicks, and look over at our nets and we're practicing against spin.

That's just a challenge that both sides come up against." STORY: England opener Jason Roy will miss at least two World Cup games due to a hamstring injury but captain Eoin Morgan is bullish about overcoming a back spasm and playing against Afghanistan.

Roy suffered a hamstring tear in Friday's win over West Indies and Morgan confirmed James Vince, who had a lengthy net session at Old Trafford on Monday (June 17), will replace the opener on Tuesday.

Roy made a superb 153 against Bangladesh in Cardiff but his replacement as opener Joe Root impressed with an unbeaten century which sealed an eight-wicket win for the hosts.

The 26-year-old Roy will miss the matches against Afghanistan and Sri Lanka but Morgan is confident he will be back before the June 30 game against India.

Morgan said that he had not spoken to selector Ed Smith about possibly recalling Alex Hales, who was withdrawn from the squad on the eve of the tournament for recreational drug use.

Morgan had better news about his own health after suffering the back spasm in the match against West Indies after which he delivered his news conference standing up, saying he has improved and is hopeful of playing on Tuesday.

England are fourth in the table with six points from four matches and will be overwhelming favourites against bottom- placed Afghanistan who have lost all four games.
