Reflecting on Paine's and Alex's appointment, national selector Trevor Hohns said, "Tim is a strong leader and will captain the side for this series, supported by Aaron.A decision on a permanent one-day captain will be made in due course".

Australia will bring a new-look squad led by Test captain Tim Paine for the five-match series, with former skipper Steve Smith and vice-captain David Warner suspended for their parts in the scandal in South Africa. Finch has been named his deputy for the five-match ODI series.

Australia will also play one T20 in England before a short tri-series in Zimbabwe, also featuring Pakistan. He was also handed a central contract by Cricket Australia and is in contention to become Australia's front-line wicketkeeper-batsman, should Paine be dropped from ODI format so as to focus on Test captaincy.

"Alex is a very smart one-day player who can also bat anywhere in the order".

Cricket Australia has launched reviews into the players' behaviour and its own operations, and Lyon said he hoped the England tour could be a fresh start.

Australia selector Trevor Hohns said: "Obviously, these are the conditions we will face during the tournament so now is a ideal chance to give these players an opportunity to press their case for selection".

Among the misses, there are Chris Lynn, Usman Khawaja and Cameron White, as well as Adam Zampa, who has not received a central contract by CA yet.

He was a part of the team that toured India a year ago, but he was recently left out of New South Wales' central contract because of his poor form in domestic cricket.

Off-spinner Lyon, who has been recalled to the ODI squad for the first time since 2016, said he expected England fans to take full advantage of recent events.

"Nathan is our No. 1 off-spinner and has excelled with the red ball, however he is not new to white-ball cricket and deserves his chance to push for World Cup selection".

"England potentially have a number of left-handers in their side and we look forward to seeing what (Lyon) can produce with the white-ball in English conditions", said Hohns. The injured fast-bowling duo of Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins was unavailable for selection. Starc has a "tibial bone stress in his right leg" while Cummins is still recuperating from a back injury.

Chris Lynn's troublesome shoulders continue to hurt his global prospects with the Queensland master blaster overlooked for Australia's next two series of white-ball fixtures.

ODI squad: Tim Paine (c), Aaron Finch (vc), Ashton Agar, Alex Carey, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Nathan Lyon, Glenn Maxwell, Shaun Marsh, Jhye Richardson, Kane Richardson, D'Arcy Short, Billy Stanlake, Marcus Stoinis, Andrew Tye.

Shaun Marsh, the veteran batsman, has returned to the 50-over squad.

Meanwhile, the uncapped Queensland pair of Mitchell Swepson and Jack Wildermuth have also earned shock selection in the squads.
