Finn replacing Woakes in England squad for Champions Trophy

The Victorian was Australia's frontline spinner during their triumphant World Cup campaign in 2015 and for most of the year that preceded it, while he bowled his maximum of 10 overs in three of five matches during Australia's last ODI series in the United Kingdom two years ago.

"He's obviously been very impressive for us over the last couple of years and a mainstay, a very reliable guy, and it is a worry when he goes off the field and can't come back on and bowl", said Morgan.

"I thought Heady did well, but I have been working hard on my bowling and hopefully I will get an opportunity at some stage", Maxwell said.

Stokes has struggled with a knee injury since his return while Woakes was rested against South Africa as he recovered from a thigh niggle.

GLENN Maxwell says Australia can target Bangladesh's bowling attack in its must-win Champions Trophy clash at The Oval tonight (AEST).

"I never take a backward step and try to be negative or defensive", he said. I ll listen to the medical staff, they know exactly what they are doing.

But, Varadkar himself pointed out, Sebastian Kurz, the favourite to become Austria's new prime minister, is eight years younger. He will be confirmed as Taoiseach, or prime minister, when the Irish parliament reconvenes on June 13.

"I was away from cricket coaching for a year, and now, I want to come back to it".

"I ve never had a side strain before but as a bowler it s one of those injuries that is important not to risk".

The likeliest replacement is Finn, who was considered unlucky to have missed out on original selection for the squad, in spite of his occasionally erratic form in recent months.

Middlesex pair Toby Roland-Jones and Finn were the leading contenders to fill the vacant position and it is the latter, who has played worldwide cricket in all three formats, who has been given the nod.

If England are looking for a more experienced option then Stuart Broad, who hasn't played a limited-overs global since February 2016, could also come into consideration.

Other possible replacements include uncapped Surrey and England Lions seamer Tom Curran or even a recall for Test regular Stuart Broad - who has 121 ODI caps but only two since the last World Cup in 2015.
