England all-rounder Will Jacks has been ruled out of the remainder of the Bangladesh tour due to a thigh injury. Jacks will be missing the third one-day international as well as the T20I series against Bangladesh. The third and final ODI will be played at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram on Monday, March 6. Meanwhile, the T20I series between the teams will begin on Thursday.

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) said that the 24-year-old sustained the injury while fielding in the second ODI in Dhaka on Friday. He will be heading back to England in a couple of days to begin his rehabilitation.

Regardless of the injury, Jacks is likely to be able to play for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Indian Premier League which will begin on March 31. He was roped in by the Faf du Plessis-led side for INR 3.2 crore at the player auction in December 2022. RCB will open their IPL 2023 campaign against the five-time champions Mumbai Indians on April 2.

England win ODI series against Banglandesh

Talking about the ODI series, England won the first match by three wickets. Bangladesh skipper Tamim Iqbal opted to bat first after winning the toss. The hosts posted 209/10 in 47.2 overs. Chasing the target of 210, the Jos Buttler-led side slipped to 65 for 4 and then 161 for 7 as Bangladesh felt confident to win the match. However, Dawid Malan (114*), batting at no. 3, played arguably the best innings of his ODI career to steer England to victory.

In the second ODI, the dominant England side registered a massive 132-run win against Bangladesh. Batting first, England posted a mammoth 326 for 7, with Jason Roy scoring an ODI century. Bangladesh who came to chase a towering total were bowled out for 194 with Sam Curran and Adil Rashid picking four wickets each. The third ODI will be an opportunity for the Three Lions to register a clean sweep.
