Following Tom Abell's injury withdrawal last week, England has called up Will Jacks for the one-day portion of their ODI series of Bangladesh.

When the uncapped Abell withdrew due to a side strain, the original plan was for England to play both 50-over and Twenty20 series with a 14-man squad.

However, Jacks has been summoned early from Wellington, where he was an unused member of England’s Test tour.  He had been due to travel here next week, accompanied by Ben Duckett, for the three T20 internationals.

Jacks, 24, has established a reputation as one of the most powerful hitters on the international stage. In the 2017 Hundred, he destroyed the Southern Brave's attack for 108 runs off just 48 balls, and his developing off-spin will give bowlers another option in Asian conditions.

He was due to be in Dhaka in time for Sunday’s full squad practice and will come under consideration for selection in the first of three ODIs on Wednesday.

That match at Mirpur begins just hours after the second Test in New Zealand is scheduled to conclude.
