Australia is all set to tour England in the month of September to play three T20Is and three ODI series. The visitors have already arrived in the country and played two intra-squad games at The Rose Bowl in Southampton.
Aaron Finch-led unit will kick start the tour with a three-match T20I series against England. Bowling all-rounder Daniel Sams, medium-pacer Riley Meredith and wicket-keeper batsman Josh Phillipe have earned their maiden call-up to the T20I and ODI squads for England tour.
For Australia, the top-order trio of Steven Smith, Aaron Finch and David Warner will have to shoulder the responsibility of scoring the bulk of the runs in this series.
Batting sensation Marnus Labuschagne will be looking to make an impact for the side in the upcoming series against England. In 2019, Labuschagne played a key role with the bat and helped Australia retain the Ashes series in English conditions. He will be determined to make sure Australia can make amends for their recent poor record in England.
All-rounder Glenn Maxwell makes his return to the national setup after taking a break from international cricket. Mitchell Marsh, Marcus Stoinis and Ashton Agar are capable players that will offer utility with bat and ball in the ODI and T20I series.
Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood will be three premier pace options for the side for this tour. Sean Abbott, Riley Meredith and Kane Richardson are other quick bowlers included in the squad for the T20I and ODI series.
On the other hand, England have decided to pick their full-strength squad for the upcoming series against Australia. All-rounder Ben Stokes will not be available for this tour due to personal reasons.
Joe Denly and David Willey have been dropped from the side, while wicket-keeper Jos Buttler and pacer Jofra Archer made their return to the squad for T20I and ODI series.
In the batting department, the onus will be on the experienced trio of Jonny Bairstow, Eoin Morgan and Jos Buttler to make notable contributions in this series. Test Captain Joe Root has been named in the ODI squad against Australia.
Pace duo of Mark Wood and Jofra Archer will be available for the side for the one-day series against Australia. David Willey has retained his place in the limited-overs squad after doing exceedingly well with the ball in the previous one-day series played against Ireland.
Off-spinner Moeen Ali loss of form will be a cause of concern, while Leg-spinner Adil Rashid continues to the leading spinner for the side in white-ball cricket.
