England’s new ball Test duo James Anderson and Stuart Broad  are ruled out from domestic season due to injury, the and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) announced Saturday. However, they are expected to be fit for the upcoming tour of Bangladesh. Anderson, England’s all-time leading wicket-taker, requires what an ECB statement said was ‘ongoing rehabilitation” of his right shoulder and won’t now feature again for Lancashire in the remainder of the 2016 county season.

Broad, who last played for Nottinghamshire in their Twenty 20 Blast semi-final defeat by Northamptonshire  at Edgbaston last Saturday, is recovering from an ankle problem.

However, both bowlers are expected to be fit for the Test leg of England’s tour of Bangladesh, which gets underway in October.

“Both players have managed their injuries through the summer and a break from cricket is needed to best prepare the Test opening bowling pair for England’s winter campaign that begins this October in Bangladesh,” the ECB statement added.

Anderson and Broad were both omitted from England’s squad for their ongoing five-matches one day series against Pakistan, with the duo now regarded as Test specialists by the England management.

Meanwhile, Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB)  on Friday breathed a sign of relief as England announced  that they will follow the schedule of Bangladesh tour.

Clouds were hovering over the tour after a terrorist attack on an upscale Dhaka cafe saw many people killed, mostly are the foreigners. ECB sent a security official who found everything fine and BCB’s plan for fans, players, and journalist  also satisfied the security expert.

However, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) confirmed the tour on Thursday, ending weeks of speculation over the fate of the series which  includes two Test and three One-Day International (ODI) matches in October. The confirmation followed a visit to Bangladesh by an ECB security team, which on Thursday briefed the England players about the situation in Dhaka and the port of Chittagong-the venues of the tour.
