England pick Chris Woakes for third ODI

London, Jul 2: England, on Monday, included fast bowler Chris Woakes for their third One Day International against Australia on July 4 in Birmingham.

"Warwickshire pace bowler Chris Woakes has been added to the squad for the third ODI against Australia at Edgbaston on Wednesday July 4. Jade Dernbach and Stuart Meaker are unavailable for selection on compassionate grounds and will attend the funeral of Tom Maynard alongside their Surrey team-mates on Wednesday," an England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) media release said on Monday.

Woakes has played four ODIs for England and his last of them was in August, 2011 against Ireland.

"Samit Patel will train with the squad at Edgbaston on Tuesday before being released to play for Notts Outlaws against Lancashire Lightning in the Friends Life T20 on Tuesday evening. Patel will re-join the squad following the FLT20 game," ECB statement added.

England are leading 2-0 in the five-match series. They won the first match by 15 runs at Lord's on Friday and defeated Australia by six wickets at The Oval on Sunday.
