    Eoin Morgan, England's limited-overs captain, has admitted there are "big concerns" over the security of the team's tour to Bangladesh later this year following last month's terrorist attack in Dhaka.
    The ECB has said they will follow government advice - and guidance from their highly regarded head of security Reg Dickason - to decide whether the tour will take place as planned. England are due to fly out on September 30.

    The ECB's security delegation, which is expected to arrive in Dhaka on Wednesday, will have meetings with local security agencies, the UK and Australian high commissions and Bangladesh's home minister Asaduzzaman Khan, the BCB has said

    England one-day captain Eoin Morgan said no player will be forced to tour Bangladesh in the light of security concerns in the country.
    The England and Wales Cricket Board sent representatives to Bangladesh to assess travel safety.
    The squad will meet them on Thursday, before flying out on 30 September for two Tests and three one-day matches.

    Intersting decision for some individuals in the test side. Arguably only Cook, Root, Bairstow, Anderson and Broad (and maybe Woakes) would be certain of retaining their place if they don't go

    Eoin Morgan, England's limited-overs captain, will not travel to Bangladesh to lead the team in their one-day series due to concerns about security, the ECB has confirmed. Opening batsman Alex Hales has also ruled himself out of the tour for the same reasons.
    Jos Buttler, the team's vice-captain, will take charge in Morgan's absence, with squads for the three ODIs and two Tests set to be announced on Friday.

    Hales taking a big risk as his place in the test side is far from secure (I know he would argue that it's a risk to go)

    In my view Morgan's place as captain is now untenable.

    Teenager Haseeb Hameed is one of three uncapped players in England's Test squad for the tour of Bangladesh.
    The Lancashire opener, 19, is joined in a 17-man party by Northamptonshire batsman Ben Duckett and Surrey all-rounder Zafar Ansari.
    Surrey off-spinner Gareth Batty, who turns 39 in October, is also included, 11 years after playing his last Test.
    Wicketkeeper Jos Buttler will captain the one-day side after Eoin Morgan pulled out over security concerns.

    England XI 137 for 4 (Duckett 59) drew with BCB XI 136 for 4 (Nafees 51) in their warm-up match

    Good half century by Ben Duckett makes his case to play in the first test.

    England 293 and 240 (Stokes 85, Bairstow 47, Shakib 5-85) - Bangladesh 248 and 263 (Sabbir 64*)

    Excellent test match - Ben Stokes deservedly Man of the match
