Sky Cricket Podcast: Bangladesh v England series preview
Last Updated: 27/09/16 4:33pm
England's tricky winter tour of the sub-continent is soon to commence, with three ODIs and two Test matches in Bangladesh, starting on Friday, October 7.
In the latest edition of the Sky Cricket podcast, which you can download here, former England captains Nasser Hussain and Michael Atherton look at the challenges the team will face in Bangladesh.
Hussain and Atherton discuss the decision of England white-ball skipper, Eoin Morgan, and Alex Hales not to tour due to security concerns in Bangladesh, and the opportunities their absence creates for the rest of the squad.
The pair look at the opportunities for players like Ben Duckett - selected in both the one-day and Test squads - who is likely to be competing for a Test spot against 19-year-old Lancashire opener, Haseeb Hameed.
They also take a closer look at the four spinners England have selected for the turning pitches of the sub-continent, and whether it was right for the 38-year-old Gareth Batty to earn a spot.
For all that, and more, download the Sky Cricket podcast.
Watch the first ODI of the three match series between Bangladesh and England, live on Sky Sports 2 on Friday, October 7.
