Australia squad for NatWest Series v England 2013

George Bailey

Originally brought in as a specialist Twenty20 captain, Bailey has long since proven himself with the bat in the limited-overs formats. He possesses the perfect method for batting in the middle order with his ability to rotate and strike inventive boundaries.

Michael Clarke

While the Australia skipper's best format is Test cricket, Clarke still boasts an excellent one-day international record, averaging above 44. He has not featured in the sprint format since 2010 and will likely only play in the 50-over games.

Nathan Coulter-Nile

Primarily a fast bowler, Coulter-Nile has appeared in one Twenty20 international and no one-day internationals before the series but has an excellent domestic record. 

James Faulkner

A fiery all-rounder, Faulkner is a destructive lower-order batsmen and an excellent death bowler. He featured in the final Investec Ashes Test, enjoying a fine debut in the longest format.

Fawad Ahmed

A leg-spinner capable of extracting sharp turn, Ahmed was yet to make his debut prior to the series despite being given an Australian passport in time for the Ashes. He has not played much limited-overs cricket domestically yet will hope for a chance to impress.

Aaron Finch

A powerful top-order batsman who has a solid Twenty20 international record, albeit a lacklustre one-day international equivalent, Finch could prove extremely dangerous if given an opportunity.

Josh Hazlewood

The fresh-faced seamer has played a sole one-day international and Twenty20 international before this rubber, although he will hope for further opportunities with Australia having selected a youthful squad.

Phil Hughes

Despite his struggles during the Test series, when Hughes was discarded after the first two matches, he has made an impressive start to his one-day international career. The unorthodox left-hander averages just less than 42 and will be keen to build upon his early success.

Mitchell Johnson

Johnson returns to the fold having not been involved in the Ashes party. While his often wayward nature means he is no longer a Test regular, the left-arm paceman remains a major threat in limited-overs cricket.

Clint McKay

An accurate and often economical performer in one-day cricket, McKay has been one of Australia’s one-day standouts in recent times. He bowls in a style akin to Glenn McGrath and will doubtless prove threatening.

Shaun Marsh

The left-hander appears to have rediscovered his best form in recent times having scored bucketloads of runs for Australia A over the last few months. At his best, Marsh is a very handy man to have up the order.

Glenn Maxwell

A wily off-spinner and useful hitter down the order, Maxwell is still best known as the man who barely played after being bought for in excess of $1mllion by Indian Premier League franchise the Mumbai Indians. However, that price tag - while being excessive - shows that the all-rounder is a fine cricketer on his day.

Steven Smith

Having got over the hump and struck a first Test century during the Investec Ashes, Smith is surely set to deliver more consistently. A wonderful timer of the ball, handy leg-spinner and excellent fielder, he may well be a man to fear in this series.

Adam Voges

Recalled at the age of 33, Australia will hope Voges - another who is surely unlucky not to have played more - can emulate Chris Rogers in taking full advantage of being given another crack.

Matthew Wade

Destructive wicketkeeper-batsman Wade can put a frustrating Ashes, in which he was surprisingly not picked for a single Test, to one side as he reclaims the gloves in the limited-overs formats.

Shane Watson

It is slightly ominous, given Watson’s overall one-day international record and excellent one against England, that he ended the five-day leg with a stupendous 176. Put simply, the powerful opener can destroy any attack on his day.
