Duckett in for England

Cricket – Northamptonshire’s Ben Duckett is the surprise inclusion in England’s Test squad for next month’s tour of Bangladesh.

The batsman is also in the one-day group.

Spin bowler Gareth Batty – who turns 39 during the trip and last played for the national team in 2005, also gets a call-up for the Tests – along with his Surrey team-mate Zafar Ansari.

As expected, Lancashire’s teenage opening batsman Haseeb Hameed has been picked in the 17-man Test squad.

Joe Root is rested for the O-D-I’s.
