England lose quicks Anderson and Wood

Press AssociationPress Association 28/09/2016

England have suffered a double blow to their seam bowling ranks as James Anderson and Mark Wood were ruled out of the Bangladesh tour due to a recurrence of recent injuries.

Spearhead Anderson, as expected, was forced to withdraw from the Test squad due to continuing problems with his right shoulder, although Wood's omission with ongoing left ankle issues comes as a surprise.

The Durham paceman's place in the squad for the three one-day internationals has been handed to Steven Finn, while Jake Ball, already in the ODI line-up, will stay on for the two-Test series that follows.
