Australia have named their squads for both the ICC World Twenty20 and the ICC Women's World Twenty20 which begin in Bangladesh next month.

Brad Hodge and Brad Hogg are included in Australia's 15-man squad as Brad Haddin, David Warner and Shane Watson return after being rested for the recent series against England.

Leg-spinner James Muirhead is in the squad after making a good impression in the same series and James Faulkner, expected to have recovered from knee surgery by then, is also in.

Meg Lanning, who acted as captain of the women's team when Jodie Fields was unavailable through injury during the Women's Ashes, will continue to lead the side despite Fields' return.
