Australia recall Glenn Maxwell for ODIs in opposition to England

Travis Head batting position Australia England ODI series cricket

Batsman Glenn Maxwell has been recalled to the Australian squad as cover for Aaron Finch, who was ruled out of Friday's fourth one-day worldwide against England in Adelaide with a hamstring injury.

The 29-year-old has been a notable absentee from Australia's global squads in recent months, with captain Steve Smith openly questioning his recent contributions and suggesting he should "train smarter". It is the second time in his coaching tenure that Lehmann has deflected calls for change around the team - he notably bristled at the team performance manager Pat Howard's suggestion that he needed to "reinvent" himself as a coach after the loss of five consecutive Test matches in 2016.

His inclusion in the squad means he will not be available for the Stars in their final BBL game against the Hobart Hurricanes on Saturday.

Finch had been one of Australia's few shining lights, making centuries in the first two games. We probably haven't played the way we would've liked. "The more I play, I can show people what they are missing".

Struggling Southampton battle to a point against Spurs
On another day they would have taken all three points here; the victories certainly need to start mounting up soon. Southampton started brightly, pressing Tottenham in a style they themselves have become known for.

During the Test series he averaged 16.28 with the bat and 49.50 with the ball - world-class contributions if reversed, somewhat less impressive as they are. "I think you still want your best bowlers playing ... but you do need to work on skills from time to time", he said.

"I feel confident about my game at the moment". I think these days you just can't afford to do that. To be able to go back the other night [with the Strikers] I was really happy not so much with the way I finished but the way I started. "I'm hitting the ball well, I'm working my way through situations a lot better and I'm picking my areas a lot smarter".

The Yorkshire seamer bowled just eight balls before being forced off the field as the tourists defended 302 to win the five-match series with two games to spare.

"I'll happily bat wherever they want".
