Saqib Mahmood returns to England squad for Bangladesh tour

Somerset captain Tom Abell and Leicestershire legspinner Rehan Ahmed have been picked in England’s 15-man ODI and T20I squads for their tour of Bangladesh. While this is Abell’s maiden call-up, 18-year-old Rehan made his England debut in the Karachi Test recently and even bagged a seven-wicket haul.

The squads also mark the return of Mark Wood, who was rested for the recent ODI tour of South Africa, which the visitors lost 2-1. Also returning is Saqib Mahmood, who has been away from the action since May last year with a stress fracture.

Omitted from the squad are Harry Brook, David Willey and Olly Stone, all three of whom accompanied England to South Africa recently.
