Warwickshire all-rounder Chris Woakes has been called into England's One-Day International squad for the third match against Australia, which will be played at Edgbaston, his home ground.

He has been drafted in as Surrey quick bowlers Jade Dernbach and Stuart Meaker will be attending the funeral of former team-mate Tom Maynard on the same day.

23-year-old Maynard was killed in an accident late last month, Dernbach and Meaker having been given compassionate leave to attend his funeral.

Woakes has played four ODIs for England, the most recent of which was against Ireland in August 2011.

Meanwhile, Nottinghamshire all-round Samit Patel will train with the squad on Tuesday (3rd July) but will be released to play for Nottinghamshire in the Friends Life t20 against Lancashire on Tuesday evening.

He will then rejoin the squad ahead of Wednesday's ODI.

England ODI squad: Alastair Cook (captain), James Anderson, Jonny Bairstow, Ian Bell, Ravi Bopara, Tim Bresnan, Stuart Broad, Steven Finn, Craig Kieswetter, Eoin Morgan, Samit Patel, Graeme Swann, Jonathan Trott, Chris Woakes
