Glenn Maxwell will not be involved in the one-day series against England.

Cameron White has been recalled by Australia after a three-year absence for the five-match one-day series against England rather than Glenn Maxwell.

White, 34, who won the NatWest Blast with Northamptonshire three years ago, replaces the injured Chris Lynn in the squad.

His selection ahead of Maxwell means he will miss the Melbourne derby between the Renegades and the Stars in the Big Bash League.

"Cameron's in very good form, as his figures demonstrate. He's playing very well," said Australia's national selector Trevor Hohns.

"He's one of the leading run-scorers in this season's 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."

His last international appearance saw him make a second-ball duck against England in Hobart three years ago.

White has hit 285 runs at an average of 142.5 and has a strike-rate of 115.85 for the Renegades, 11/5 to win the Big Bash League, this season.

He made his Australia debut in 2005 and has gone on to feature in 88 one-day internationals, 47 Twenty20 internationals and four Tests.

The Victoria batsman averages 34.52 in his one-day international career. Australia are 7/2 to beat England in the one-day series.
