|Player:||JM Anderson, MA Wood, JT Ball, ST Finn|
|Event:||England in Bangladesh 2016/17|
England bowlers James Anderson and Mark Wood have been ruled out of England’s tour of Bangladesh following a recurrence of their recent injuries.
Swing bowler Anderson has been withdrawn from the Test squad due to an ongoing injury to his right shoulder.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 Wood has had a recurrence of left ankle symptoms. He will miss the three One-dayers starting on Friday October 7 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.
