Australia have recalled veteran Cameron White for the one-day series against England, snubbing Glenn Maxwell.
Maxwell was dropped from the original squad in favour of Chris Lynn in what was seen as a shot across the bows, followed by a rebuke over his training methods from captain Steve Smith.
Lynn’s calf injury raised hopes of an immediate reprieve but the selection panel have instead returned to the 34-year-old White, who last played for his country three years ago – against England in Hobart.

He has been rewarded for some eye-catching form in the Big Bash, averaging 142.5 for Melbourne Renegades.
National selector Trevor Hohns said: ‘Cameron’s in very good form, as his figures demonstrate. He’s playing very well.
‘He’s one of the leading run-scorers in this season’s KFC BBL, he’s experienced, he’s a very smart cricketer and he’s a good fielder.
‘He ticks all the boxes for what we need at this stage.’
