Starc, O'Keefe to miss Bangladesh Test series

Pace spearhead Mitchell Starc and left-arm spinner Steve O'Keefe were the two notable omissions from the 13-member Australia side that will tour Bangladesh for a two-Test cricket rubber in August, Cricket Australia (CA) announced on Friday.

Starc, who was ruled out of the second half of the India tour with a fractured foot, returned for Australia's failed ICC Champions Trophy campaign. But the left-armer's injury has not fully healed and he was subsequently ordered rest to be fit for the crucial Ashes campaign, starting November 23.

India on Monday said it won't play bilateral cricket series with Pakistan as long as Islamabad continues to support and sponsor cross-border terrorism.
