England Cricket will have to travel to Bangladesh without top bowlers Mark Wood and James Anderson next Month. Both players have to be left behind this October due to injuries that render them unfit to play.
England Cricket could suffer on tour in Bangladesh without James Anderson and Mark Wood. Injuries, that were sustained previously, continue to return to haunt the careers of both players.
James Anderson is the current lead wicket taker in test matches but hasn’t played since August when England faced Pakistan and lost the series. His absence has been due to a shoulder injury that will continue to take time to fully heal.
Wood, on the other hand, is suffering with an injury to his ankle. He is still receiving treatment and a time frame on his recovery is not yet known.
England are due to head to Bangladesh this week to begin preparations for the challenges ahead. On their tour they will play two test matches and three One Day International matches. The first ODI is due to take place on October 7th. The first test match begins on October 20th.
Wood had been named as part of both the ODI and test match squads. Due to his expertise, Anderson was scheduled to play in just the test matches. Both will now have to be replaced. So far Jake Ball has been named to take up Andersons Place in the test line up, but there could be further changes before the matches begin. Steven Finn, who plays for Middlesex has been added to the ODI squad to take up the position left by Wood.
