Fast bowler Graham Onions has been added to England's Champions Trophy squad as a replacement for all-rounder Andrew Flintoff and he has also been added to their squad for the ongoing ODI series against Australia.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) have confirmed that Onions can replace Flintoff, who underwent knee surgery shortly after England regained the Ashes last month, in the 15-man squad for the tournament which begins on 22nd September.

England are placed in Group B and will take on New Zealand, Sri Lanka and South Africa.

Onions is yet to make his ODI debut but has enjoyed a fine start to his Test career, playing a part in England's Ashes success and has already taken 20 wickets in five Tests.

Champions Trophy Squad/ODI squad: Andrew Strauss (captain), James Anderson, Ravi Bopara, Tim Bresnan, Stuart Broad, Paul Collingwood, Joe Denly, Eoin Morgan, Graham Onions, Matt Prior, Adil Rashid, Owais Shah, Ryan Sidebottom, Graeme Swann, Luke Wright
