England Men's selection panel have announced two 15-player squads for next month’s ODI and T20I series away to Bangladesh.

Both squads feature uncapped batter Tom Abell, who will lead the England Lions in the upcoming ODI series in Sri Lanka, and leg-spinner Rehan Ahmed, who receives his first call-up to an England white-ball squad.

Saqib Mahmood was chosen for the ODI team as he gets ready to play full international cricket again after suffering a back injury in May.

The three-match T20 series will be England's first since winning the ICC Men's T20 World Cup in Australia in November of last year.

Pace bowler Jofra Archer is included in both squads after taking six wickets in the third ODI against South Africa on Wednesday - his second international match back after 17 months out injured.

Fellow fast bowler Mark Wood will also tour Bangladesh, having been rested for the New Zealand series.

England plan to work with players around their franchise commitments with Sam Billings, Liam Dawson, Richard Gleeson, Alex Hales and Tymal Mills also honouring their PSL contracts.

England play three one-day internationals and three T20s in Bangladesh from 1 March. The 50-over leg will act as preparation for the World Cup in India, which starts in October.
