Shaun Marsh in Australia ODI squad

Melbourne, Jan 1: Pacer James Pattinson and batsman Shaun Marsh were named in the 14-member Australian squad for the first three Carlton Mid ODI Series matches against England beginning here Jan 12.

"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," commented national selector John Inverarity Tuesday.

"David Warner has won back his place in the Australia ODI squad with his outstanding recent form, not least in the domestic Ryobi 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.

"There are three outstanding players in Clarke, Warner and Marsh coming back and we believe their inclusion provides the squad with several batting options," said Inverarity.

Australian squad: Michael Clarke (captain), George Bailey (vice-captain), Nathan Coulter-Nile, Xavier Doherty, James Faulkner, Aaron Finch, Brad Haddin, Mitchell Johnson, Shaun Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Clint McKay, James Pattinson, David Warner, Shane Watson.
