The England team reached Bangladesh for their upcoming tour but there was a minor setback as the head coach Trevor Bayliss was stuck in Australia due to a visa problem.
England arrived on Friday evening but Bayliss is not expected to reach at least until Sunday according to a report in The Telegraph.
The director of England Cricket, Andrew Strauss feels that it is a good sign to see the players in a positive frame of mind after the earlier concerns regarding security.
“It was a long journey to get here, both physically and metaphorically,” Strauss said.
“Quite rightly the players had concerns over security and Reg Dickason has done a fantastic job allaying those fears and those concerns.
“It was just great to see the guys in a positive frame of mind when they met up at the airport.
“Once the decision’s made I think you get to the stage where you leave it to the people who are looking after that sort of stuff to do that and your concern as a player is about preparing yourself properly and making sure, come the start of the one-day series, you’re ready to go.
“That’s the impression I’ve been given so far from the players and it’s certainly the experience I went through in India in 2008.”
Strauss, who has also arrived in Bangladesh with the team was in a similar situation when England decided to tour India post the 2008 terrorist attacks in Mumbai.
England will be led by Jos Buttler in the One-Day International series of the Bangladesh tour after Eoin Morgan decided to skip the tour due to the security concerns as did opening batsman Alex Hales.
