Jason Roy and James Vince recalled to England’s ODI squad for Australia series

Jason Roy has been recalled to England’s ODI side for the series against Australia after the T20 World Cup.

The opener was dropped from the white-ball squad after struggling for runs over the summer but returns to a 15-player squad along with James Vince.

The opener’s highest score was 43 in 11 international innings and he only scored 51 during The Hundred, including three ducks.

Vince, 31, has played 19 ODIs but has not been included in an England squad since July 2021 when he scored his first 100 against Pakistan.

Sam Billings and Olly Stone are also included in the squad, while nine of England’s T20 squad will remain in Australia for the series.

Adil Rashid, Jason Roy, Phil Salt, Olly Stone, James Vince, David Willey, Chris Woakes and Luke Wood

Billings will be hoping to add to his 25 England caps, while Stone is the quickest bowler in England’s squad but his England career has stalled due to injury.

Liam Dawson and Luke Wood are also in Australia as reserves and are included in the ODI Squad.

Ben Stokes, who retired from 50-over cricket earlier this year, drops out along with Harry Brook, Mark Wood, Liam Livingstone, Alex Hales and Tymal Mills.

Stokes, Brook, Wood and Livingstone will join the Test squad before the three-match series against Pakistan begins in December.
