The English and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) on Tuesday, October 25, announced the English white-ball squad for the upcoming ODI series against Australia National Cricket Team. James Vince is recalled to the side after his last appearance came in July 2021 against Pakistan at home and Durham duo Ben Stokes and Mark Wood has been rested to manage their workloads.
Jos Buttler will be leading the ODI squad for England. 11 out of the 15 players picked for this series are already in Australia as part of the T20 World Cup squad. Surrey seamer Chris Jordan and Nottinghamshire quick Olly stone are also recalled for the series after a long gap since they played their last ODI. Stone last played an ODI for England in October 2018 against Srilanka whereas Jordan hasn’t featured in the format in more than two years.
England Men’s ODI squad:
Jos Buttler (Lancashire) Captain
Moeen Ali (Warwickshire – from 1 November)
Sam Billings (Kent)
Sam Curran (Surrey)
Liam Dawson (Hampshire)
Chris Jordan (Surrey)

The Jos Buttler-led side will also see the return of Surrey dashing batsman Jason Roy who was dropped from the England T20I side owing to his lean English summer. The left Handed batsman Dawid Malan has also been recalled after being left out of England’s home ODIs this summer and the 35-year-old Yorkshire will want to have an impact on all the games that he plays. Luke Wood, who has featured in few T20s for England recently in Pakistan, is the only uncapped player in the squad. He got selected earlier and went on the tour to the Netherlands in June but did not play any game.
