Joe Denly to miss 1st ODI, Oz face Eng

The Oval: England ODI opener Joe Denly is likely to miss Friday's opening one-day international against Australia after suffering a knee injury.

England were practising at The Oval when Denly was carried off in pain.

"Joe is being assessed by the physio and until that happens we won't know any more about his condition." Team spokesman James Avery said.

"We're waiting for medical staff to have a close look at him." Avery added.

Denly was England's top-scorer with 67 against Ireland in August before being dismissed for a duck in the abandoned Twenty20 international against Australia at Old Trafford.

Australia Squad: 1 Shane Watson, 2 Tim Paine (wk), 3 Michael Clarke (capt), 4 Michael Hussey, 5 Callum Ferguson, 6 Cameron White, 7 James Hopes, 8 Mitchell Johnson, 9 Nathan Hauritz 10 Brett Lee, 11 Nathan Bracken.

England Squad: 1 Ravi Bopara, 2 Andrew Strauss (capt), 3 Matt Prior (wk), 4 Owais Shah, 5 Paul Collingwood , 6 Eoin Morgan, 7 Luke Wright, 8 Stuart Broad, 9 Graeme Swann, 10 James Anderson, 11 Ryan Sidebottom.
