Woakes added to England ODI squad

England have added Warwickshire all-rounder Chris Woakes to their squad for the one-day international series against Australia.

The tourists will welcome an influx of new faces as they try to get over their whitewash by putting in an improved showing in the shorter format.

Woakes - who made his Test debut in the final match of the Ashes series England won last summer - will now be among them.

Several of England's Test players will be rested from the ODIs after a gruelling winter, including Kevin Pietersen and James Anderson.

Fast bowlers Steven Finn and Boyd Rankin are both scheduled to stay for the limited-overs games.

Woakes has played 13 ODIs for England and four Twenty20 internationals. The first ODI of five takes place on Sunday in Melbourne.
