England have been dealt a blow ahead of the remainder of their Champions Trophy campaign after it was revealed that Chris Woakes will miss out through injury.

During the early stages of Thursday's eight-wicket victory over Bangladesh, Woakes was forced off the field after sustaining a side strain during his second over.

The all-rounder was not required with the bat so was able to rest the injury throughout the day, but a scan has revealed that he will be sidelined for the rest of the eight-team tournament.

The Warwickshire player had come into the competition after spending time in the IPL, but he will now miss some crucial fixtures for his nation as they look to win the trophy on their home patch.

England are able to name a replacement for Woakes, who will be announced in due course.
