Burnley's England paceman James Anderson has been forced out of the tour of Bangladesh by injury.

The shoulder problem that has affected his summer involvement with the Test team has forced England's record wicket-taker to be replaced for the two-Test series.

Anderson, who sits sixth in Test cricket's all-time wickets table with 463 scalps, turned 34 in July and earlier this month indicated he may not be able to play the full upcoming series against Bangladesh and India.

England will play seven Tests in just over eight weeks before Christmas, and Anderson will hope to be involved for the five matches in India.
