|Player:||PD Collingwood, KP Pietersen, A Flintoff|
|Event:||Australia in British Isles 2009|
DateLine: 17th August 2009
The English selectors have named the ODI squad and the T20 squad for the clash against Australia. Andrew Flintoff has being included in all three of England's One-day squads, but an injured batsman Kevin Pietersen has missed out on selection.
Flintoff was included in the 15-man party from which England will pick their side for the seven home ODIs against Australia that follow hard on the heels of the Ashes finale before that squad heads to South Africa for the Champions Trophy where England will bid to win their first major One-day title.
Test captain Andrew Strauss will lead a squad featuring just one uncapped player in Kent batsman Joe Denly.
But before that, and with star batsman Pietersen recovering from an Achilles injury, Flintoff will be a member of the 14-man squad that travels to Belfast for a match against Ireland that takes places just three days after the scheduled end of the decisive fifth Ashes Test.
That team will be captained by Paul Collingwood, in the rested Strauss' absence, as will the 15 man-squad chosen to face Australia in two Twenty20 internationals at Old Trafford, Flintoff's Lancashire home ground.
As well as Flintoff, Denly, leg-spinner Adil Rashid, wicket-keeper Matt Prior, Owais Shah and Ashes discard Ravi Bopara are in all three squads.
Jonathan Trott, Bopara's replacement at the Oval, only makes it into the Twenty20 squad as a batting stand-in for the absent Strauss. Strauss ruled himself out of England's Twenty20 plans earlier this year but remains available for the 50-over format.
