England Cricket Captain Joe Root has said pace bowler Steven Finn and all-rounder Moeen Ali will miss the two-day warm-up match against Western Australia XI starting in Perth this weekend.

Finn, who replaced all-rounder Ben Stokes in the touring squad, injured his left knee while batting during practice session in Perth, while 30-year-old Moeen skipped practice due to a sore left side.

Both players will undergo scans to discover the extent of their injuries ahead of the five match ashes test series, which starts on November 23 in Brisbane.
