    58429

    The Cricket Australia National Selection Panel (NSP) has today named a 14-player squad for the first three ODI Series matches against England beginning in Melbourne on 12 January.

    The 14-player Australian squad is:

    Commenting on the squad, National Selector John Inverarity said:

    “We believe this is a well-balanced squad that can build on the promising form displayed in our most recent limited overs series against England and India.

    “David Warner has won back his place in the Australia ODI squad with his outstanding recent form, not least in the domestic One-Day Cup competition that was held in September and October in Sydney.

    “Michael Clarke, Shaun Marsh and James Pattinson have been included after being unavailable through injury for the series against India in October. Phillip Hughes, Adam Voges, Moises Henriques and Callum Ferguson are unlucky to lose their places from the India ODI squad as they have all been in good form. Adam Voges is particularly unlucky as his ODI performances over the past year have been very good. There are three outstanding players in Clarke, Warner and Marsh coming back and we believe their inclusion provides the squad with several batting options.

    “Aaron Finch and Shaun Marsh are exciting prospects at the top of the order with the  ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 only 14 months away. Michael Clarke and Darren Lehmann will be looking for consistent performances from these players and the other batsmen who have the potential to impose themselves strongly on matches.

    “James Pattinson has worked hard to get back to full fitness and will be looking to regain his best form. His performances will provide a guide to the NSP when it selects the team for the Test tour to South Africa in February and March.”
