James Anderson ruled out of Bangladesh tour
Lancashire County Cricket Club bowler James Anderson has been ruled out of England’s tour of Bangladesh due to injury.
Swing bowler Anderson has been withdrawn from the Test squad due to an ongoing injury to his right shoulder. He requires more time to ensure optimal healing of a stress fracture he sustained during the summer.
Durham seamer Mark Wood has also been ruled out after having a recurrence of left ankle injury. He will miss the three One-day Internationals starting on Friday 7 October in Dhaka and the two Tests later in the month.
Both players will be reviewed by the ECB’s medical team on a regular basis and further updates will be provided on their progress in due course.
Middlesex’s Steven Finn is added to the ODI squad. Nottinghamshire’s Jake Ball is added to the Test squad and selectors will consider a further replacement for the Test squad at a later date.
