After missing the T20I series due to side strain, which also saw him pulled out of IPL, Jason Roy has returned to the ODI side for the series against Australia. Joe Denly, who was a part of the reserves, has missed out on a selection for the three-match series and will now join Kent for the Blast.

When Jason Roy pulled out of Delhi Capitals’ campaign for the Indian Premier League, it was touted that he would miss cricket for a long haul, after having missed the T20I series against Australia and Pakistan. However, putting all the speculations to rest, he has been selected in a 14-man squad to take on Australia in the forthcoming three-match ODI series, starting on September 11 in Manchester.

After his excellent run of form in the T20Is, England have also added Dawid Malan to their reserves list and let Joe Denly join Kent ahead of the resumption of the T20 Blast. Saqib Mahmood and Phil Salt make up the rest of the reserves in the line-up. 

Eoin Morgan will be back leading the side after missing the third T20I against Australia with a finger injury. As does Jos Buttler, who had left the bio-bubble after the second T20I for personal reasons and will be available upon successful COVID-19 testing in Manchester.

"Eoin, obviously good news around his finger, and touch wood he'll be fit as well. Malan has come in as a reserve, Roy has come through fit so he will join the squad and obviously Salt has come in as a reserve as well. Jos will be back in the bubble to join us in Manchester, baring test results. He should be available to play,” confirmed head coach Chris Silverwood, reported ICC.

Squad: Eoin Morgan (c), Moeen Ali, Jofra Archer, Jonny Bairstow, Tom Banton, Sam Billings, Jos Buttler, Sam Curran, Tom Curran, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood

Reserves: Saqib Mahmood, Dawid Malan, Phil Salt
