Johannesburg, Aug.24 (ANI): England limited-overs skipper Eoin Morgan has revealed that his side's player will get a chance to decide whether they want to tour Bangladesh later this year in the wake of the security concerns in the Asian country.

Morgan along with Test skipper Alastair Cook and other team members are scheduled to meet the England and Wales Cricket Board's (ECB) security director Reg Dickason on Thursday to discuss the matter.

Asserting that there was always room for a personal decision, the 29-year-old said that the players would get an opportunity to skip the Bangladesh tour if they have any concerns about the security.

The security concerns have sharply risen in the country since last month's terror attack in Dhaka, which killed 20 hostages, including nine Italians,Sport24 reported.

Earlier in 2001, bowlers Andy Caddick and Robert Croft had pulled out of India tour due to security reasons before the entire England team refused a World Cup clash against Zimbabwe in Harare two years later.

England will play a three-match ODI series and two Tests in Bangladesh, starting from October 7 at Sher-e-Bangla in Dhaka. (ANI)
