2017 Australia Tour of Bangladesh - Australia Squad Announced

Ashton Agar will replace Stephen O'Keefe as Nathan Lyon's partner in Australia's spin bowling attack for its security-delayed two-test tour of Bangladesh, which pace spearhead Mitchell Starc will miss because of injury.

Australia had been scheduled to travel to Dhaka and Chittagong for two tests in October 2015, but the trip was postponed after national cricket authorities received security warnings from the Australian government's Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade

The Australians haven't played a test in Bangladesh in more than a decade, but did play in a three-match limited-overs international series in Dhaka in 2011.

The Australian squad will arrive in Bangladesh on Aug. 18 and play a two-day tour match in Fatullah from Aug. 22, then play tests in Dhaka beginning Aug. 27 and Chittagong from Sept. 04,2017

Australia Squad

Steve Smith (captain), David Warner, Matt Renshaw, Usman Khawaja, Peter Handscomb, Glenn Maxwell, Hilton Cartwright, Matthew Wade, Pat Cummins, James Pattinson, Josh Hazlewood, Nathan Lyon, Ashton Agar.
