England today announced 15-man squads for the forthcoming One Day Internationals and International Twenty20 matches against Australia, The ICC Champions Trophy in South Africa and a 14-man squad for next week's One-Day International against Ireland in Belfast. 

Andrew Strauss will captain the side in the seven-match NatWest Series against Australia and in The ICC Champions Trophy with Paul Collingwood leading England against Ireland and in The NatWest International Twenty20 matches against Australia. 

The Kent opening batsmen Joe Denly is the only uncapped player in the squads while Jonathan Trott who played in two NatWest International Twenty20 matches against West Indies in 2007 replaces Strauss in the squads for The NatWest International Twenty20 fixtures.

ECB National Selector Geoff Miller said: "We have kept faith with the bulk of the squad which was successful in the NatWest Series against West Indies earlier this summer and also included two players, Luke Wright and Adil Rashid, who were part of our squad for the ICC World T20. 

"Joe Denly has impressed the selectors for a while with some excellent performances in One-Day cricket and with Kevin Pietersen unavailable through injury, this is an excellent opportunity for Joe to step up to the next level and show what he is capable of. 

"Andrew Strauss has led the side extremely well in both forms of cricket this summer, but the selectors felt it would be beneficial for him to have a short break from international cricket following the conclusion of the npower Ashes Test series and Paul Collingwood will lead the side in Ireland and in The NatWest International Twenty20s."
