Adam Voges has been added to Australia's One-Day International squad ahead of the seven-match series against England which starts later this week.

Voges, who impressed when in a one-off ODI against Scotland last week, comes into the squad as an extra batsman after wicket-keeper Brad Haddin was ruled out of the tour with a finger injury.

Voges will now join up with the squad as they prepare for the first ODI at The Oval on 4th September.

"With Brad Haddin's injury, the NSP has taken the opportunity to add Adam Voges to Australia's squad for the seven one-day internationals against England," National Selection Panel Chairman Andrew Hilditch confirmed in a statement.

"Adam will now stay with the squad for the remainder of the VB Tour of England before travelling with the team to the ICC Champions Trophy in South Africa."

Voges has to date played two ODIs and four Twenty20 Internationals and was also named in Australia's Champions Trophy squad. Should Haddin, who underwent finger surgery last week not be fit to travel to South Africa, Tim Paine would be his likely replacement.

  • Adam Voges spoke to Cricket World TV earlier in the year, looking ahead to the Ashes, the county season and more.
