The England Men's selection panel has announced two 15-player squads for the upcoming ODI and IT20 series against Bangladesh, set to take place next month.
The inclusion of uncapped Somerset batter, Tom Abell, has drawn attention. He is set to captain England in the upcoming ODI series in Sri Lanka.
Leicestershire leg-spinner, Rehan Ahmed, has earned his first call-up to an England white ball squad, a testament to his hard work and consistent performances.
The panel has also added Saqib Mahmood to the ODI squad, as he prepares to make his return to international cricket after suffering a back injury last May.
The three-match T20 series will be England's first after winning the ICC Men's T20 World Cup in Australia last November.
The England team will arrive in Dhaka on February 20 and play two warm-up matches on February 24 and 26.
The ODI series will begin with the first match on March 1 at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur. The second and third ODIs will be played on March 3 and 6.
The third match will be played at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram.
The T20Is will start on March 9 in Chattogram. The remaining two T20Is will be played on March 12 and 14 in Mirpur.
