Bowlers Anderson, Wood out of England tour of Bangladesh

LONDON (AP) " Bowlers James Anderson and Mark Wood have been ruled out of England's tour of Bangladesh because of injuries.

The ECB says Anderson has withdrawn from the Test squad because of an aggravated right shoulder injury.

Wood has a left ankle injury and will miss the three one-day matches starting on Oct. 7 in Dhaka and the two Tests later in the month.

Middlesex's Steven Finn has been added to the ODI squad, with Nottinghamshire's Jake Ball brought up to the Test squad.

The ECB says selectors will consider a further replacement for the Test squad at a later date.
