The Ashes Tour: Australian ODI Squad named

Cricket Australia has tweaked its ODI squad for the upcoming series against Scotland and England. The squad is:

Michael Clarke (ODI capt), George Bailey, Fawad Ahmed, Nathan Coulter-Nile, James Faulkner, Aaron Finch, Josh Hazlewood, Phillip Hughes, Mitchell Johnson, Shaun Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Clint McKay, Adam Voges, Matthew Wade (wk), Shane Watson.

David Warner has been dropped and Mitchell Starc is returning home injured.

The dropping of Warner has arisen because of his poor form in the ODI form of the game. Frankly, this is not before time given that he has been averaging 20 in this form. Hopefully he will return to the domestic form of the game and actually play some first class cricket.
