England arrive in Dhaka
Visiting England cricket team arrived in Dhaka on Friday to take part in two Test matches and three ODIs against Bangladesh. The 34-member contingent, comprising 16 cricketers and 18 officials including the security and England and Wales Cricket Board members, set foot at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport at 8:05pm, courtesy the Etihad Airways EOY-258 flight. England will start the tour to Bangladesh without head coach Trevor Bayliss who has been delayed in Australia due to a hitch with his visa accroding to The Telegraph. Jos Buttler and his troop will play a practice match against the Bangladesh Cricket Board XI ahead of the ODI series, which begins next Friday at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur.

Following the ODI series, Alastair Cook and his side are scheduled to play a couple of two-day matches against the BCB XI in Chittagong's MA Aziz Stadium. The first of two Test matches gets underway at ZACS on October 20. The second and final five-dayer begins on October 28. England fast bowler James Anderson will miss the tour as he is yet to recover fully from his shoulder injury, which he incurred during the summer season while Durham paceman Mark Wood was also ruled out from the Bangladesh tour due to an ankle injury. Middlesex's Steven Finn was added to the ODI squad while Nottinghamshire's Jake Ball was added to the Test squad.
