England have named the following squad for the Twenty20 and one-day international series against Australia in January and February 2011.

James Anderson was rested for the T20 internationals and the first three ODIs, with Steven Finn retained from the Test squad as cover. Finn remained with the squad after a calf injury ended Tim Bresnan's tour following the second ODI.

Matt Prior was added to the squad ahead of the second ODI following his inclusion in England's World Cup party.

Graeme Swann, who missed the second and third ODIs with a badly bruised knee, was forced to return home ahead of the fourth match due to a back injury.

Liam Plunkett was added to the squad for the seventh ODI due to injuries to Chris Tremlett (side strain) and Ajmal Shahzad (hamstring strain), which forced them to return home.

Paul Collingwood also made an early departure due to a back injury he sustained in the sixth ODI.
