England in Bangladesh 2016

England Pick Teenager Hameed, Duckett

London: England have named three uncapped players in the Test squad for their tour of Bangladesh starting next month.

Lancashire opener Haseeb Hameed, 19, Northamptonshire batsman Ben Duckett and Surrey all-rounder Zafar Ansari are included in the 17-man squad.

Surrey off-spinner Gareth Batty, who will be 39, is also included, 11 years after playing his last Test.

Wicketkeeper Jos Buttler will captain the one-day side after Eoin Morgan pulled out over security concerns.

Buttler returns to the Test squad along with fast bowler Mark Wood, who has not played a Test since October 2015 following an ankle injury.

Batsman Joe Root has been rested from the one-day team, while James Vince has been dropped from the Test side but included in the ODI squad.

England play three one-day internationals starting on 7 October, followed by a two-Test series from 20 October.

England have selected four spinners in the Test squad, with Surrey captain Batty and 24-year-old slow left-armer Ansari joining off-spinner Moeen Ali and leg-spinner Adil Rashid.

The most recent of Batty's seven Tests came against Bangladesh in 2005, but he has taken 41 championship wickets at an average of 32 this season.

Ansari was named in England's Test squad to tour Pakistan last year, but dislocated a thumb hours after being called up. He has claimed 39 wickets at 31 apiece in the championship this summer.

Alastair Cook, England's Test captain, is set to travel to Bangladesh a week ahead of the Test party to work on his skills before returning home for the birth of his second child.
