A video uploaded by Cricket Australia on their YouTube channel showing national selector John Inverarity discussing the Australian 18-man squad announced for the limited overs component of the tour of England.
Pakistan-born leg-spinner Fawad Ahmed was included in the squad. Ahmed, 31, a former refugee who became an Australian citizen last month, replaces Xavier Doherty, who played in the ICC Champions Trophy in England last June.
Inverarity said Ahmed has an opportunity to be the squad's lead spin bowler.
Elsewhere, batsmen Steve Smith, Aaron Finch and Shaun Marsh were included in the squad, along with paceman Josh Hazlewood.
