Eoin Morgan will not tour Bangladesh if ‘distracted’ by security

England one-day captain Eoin Morgan says he will never again go on a tour where security concerns may affect his game.

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) is satisfied with security for the tour of Bangladesh in October.

Morgan, 29, has yet to decide if he will make himself available.

“Once or twice security became a distraction and, when it has been, I told myself that I’d never put myself in that situation again,” he said.

No international side has toured Bangladesh since 20 people were killed in a siege at a cafe in Dhaka in July.

The ECB conducted a security review before saying the tour, which includes three one-day internationals and two Tests, would go ahead.

England players Moeen Ali, Chris Jordan and Liam Dawson have publically said they will tour if selected, while Jonny Bairstow has indicated he will do the same.
