The NSP has tonight confirmed the squad for the final two ODI matches in Perth and Adelaide.
Matthew Wade will replace Brad Haddin in the fourth ODI against England in Perth.
The Squad for Perth and Adelaide is:
Michael Clarke NSW (Adelaide only)
Mitchell Johnson WA (vc Perth)

James Faulkner TAS
Aaron Finch VIC
Shaun Marsh WA
Glenn Maxwell VIC
Clint McKay VIC
James Pattinson VIC
Steve Smith NSW

National Selector John Inverarity said: “Michael Clarke will be given a break and not go to Perth. He will re-join the ODI Squad for Adelaide, as will Shane Watson.
“George Bailey will captain the team in Perth and Mitch Johnson has been appointed vice-captain for this fixture.
“Brad Haddin and David Warner will also take a well-deserved break and miss both the Perth and Adelaide ODIs.
“Steve Smith comes into the squad and would be likely to replace Michael in the middle order and Matt Wade will replace Brad Haddin.
“Two players are likely to be released from the squad following Perth when Clarke and Watson come back in.”
