FSA SL-K Light Crankset - Swapping between BB86 & English BB

I'm getting a new frame that uses a BB86 bottom bracket standard. My current frame uses an English 68mm BB, so with my FSA SL-K Light crankset it uses the MegaExo bottom bracket. If I buy this FSA BB86 bottom bracket: https://www.backcountry.com/fsa-steel...mbly-bb86-bb92

Will I be able to use my cranks with that BB on my new frame? Are there not specific cranks for specific BB's?

Thanks for any help

Well, the literature for the BB86 BB says, "This bottom bracket assembly presses into a BB86 to accommodate all of FSA's Light series carbon and alloy NBD (no pinch bolt) cranks, as well as Shimano's FC-9000 Dura-Ace 11-speed crankset."

It also says that it is for 24mm spindles, and that's what my crankset has. So I think I should be okay?
