Manchester: England opener Jason Roy has been added in the squad for the ODI series against Australia, starting from Friday.

The 30-year-old missed the T20Is against Pakistan and Australia with a side problem but is back in the 14-man group for the 50-over matches which will be played in a bio-secure environment at Old Trafford.

On the other hand, number one ranked T20I batsman Dawid Malan has been added as a reserve. He has not played an ODI since his debut against Ireland in May 2019.

Joe Denly has dropped out of the reserve list and returns to Kent ahead of the resumption of the T20 Blast. Phil Salt and Saqib Mahmood remain.

Captain Eoin Morgan is expected to be fit after he missed the final T20I against Australia due to finger injury. Jos Buttler is also likely to be back after he left the bio-secure bubble after 2nd T20I.
