MOEEN Ali is to undergo a scan tomorrow after suffering soreness in his left side which meant he missed England’s practice session in Perth today.

The Worcestershire all-rounder will not feature in England’s opening two-day warm-up game against a Western Australia XI at the WACA starting on Saturday.

England have two more warm-up matches before the first Ashes Test in three weeks.

Moeen, who last week signed a new five-year contract with the County, has enjoyed a superb 2017 for his country in Test cricket.

He is the 10th highest wicket-taker this year with 30 victims in seven Tests at an average of 21.30.
