England have added Chris Jordan to their Twenty20 International squad to face Australia as a replacement for Steven Finn.

Finn returned to England earlier this week to work on his game having not played an international match during the tour.

Surrey pace bowler Jordan has impressed during the first two One-Day Internationals and will now stay with the squad for the three Twenty20 Internationals on 29th January, 31st January and 2nd February.

Jordan was due to head to Sri Lanka with the England Lions but Yorkshire's Liam Plunkett, who has played nine Tests, 29 ODIs and a T20 International for England, will replace him in the Lions squad.

England Twenty20 International squad: Stuart Broad (captain), Ravi Bopara, Tim Bresnan, Danny Briggs, Jos Buttler, Jade Dernbach, Steven Finn, Alex Hales, Chris Jordan, Michael Lumb, Eoin Morgan, Boyd Rankin, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, James Tredwell, Luke Wright
