Johnson, Cummins in Aussies ODI Squad for England Tour

Sydney: Former Test pacer Mitchell Johnson and young quick Pat Cummins were named on Thursday in an Australian one-day squad for a tour of England and Ireland in June and July.

Left-armer Johnson has been out of international cricket for six months following foot surgery.

Cummins, 19, is being eased back into elite cricket after missing the entire Australian summer season with a bone stress injury in his heel.

Chief selector John Inverarity said Johnson, 30, who is to play for Durham in this season's English domestic Twenty20 competition, was in contention for the ICC Twenty20 World Cup in Sri Lanka starting in September.

Inverarity said exciting pace bowler Cummins was being eased back into cricket after his man-of-the-match seven-wicket debut in last November's second Johannesburg Test against South Africa.

Australia, to be led by Michael Clarke, are scheduled to play five ODIs against England, another against Ireland in Belfast and two other games against English county opponents.

Australia ODI squad:

  • Michael Clarke (captain)
  • Shane Watson (vice captain)
  • Matthew Wade (wk)
