England Cricket Team arrived in Dhaka on Friday — Collected

England's limited-overs squad touched down in Dhaka ahead of the One-Day and Twenty20 series against Bangladesh.

With the Test team playing against New Zealand in Wellington, Jos Buttler led the limited-overs team to Dhaka on Friday morning, reports bdnews24.com.

The Three Lions were supposed to arrive in Dhaka on February 20 to play a warm-up before taking on the Tigers, but it was cancelled.

Buttler and his team will start training today (Saturday) before the ODIs begin on March 1. The first two ODIs will be held in Mirpur before the teams travel to Chattogram for the last.

The first of three T20s will be played in Chattogram on March 9 as the team are scheduled to fly back to Dhaka for the last two matches on March 12 and 14.

Both teams have secured their spots in the ODI World Cup.

Bangladesh suffered their last home series defeat to England - in 2016 - with Chandika Hathurusingha at the helm. The Sri Lankan's second stint as the Tigers' head coach began at the end of last month.
