White's last global appearance came in 2015 but selection chairman Trevor Hohns said: 'He's experienced, he's a very smart cricketer and he's a good fielder.

"I'm desperate to play for England but there are probably a couple of games I played in the past when I shouldn't have and that has damaged my reputation with coaches and selectors".

Eoin Morgan has defended his head coach, Trevor Bayliss, before England's ODI series against Australia.

England's next Test assignment is two matches in New Zealand starting in March, and the 26-year-old is one of three players most under threat to keep their spot.

England were thrashed 4-0 in the five-Test Ashes series but have had better results in the 50-over format.

'He ticks all the boxes for what we need at this stage'. This time next year we need to be in a good enough space to be contenders for the World Cup. We are very open-minded with the way we are going. The best way to address it is to be on the front foot.

Of course, England are still missing Ben Stokes.

All-rounder Ben Stokes has also been included in the squad but his participation will depend on the outcome of the case following his involvement in an incident outside a Bristol nightclub in September previous year.

Steve Smith later said that while Australia's XI was yet to be settled, Warner should be fine to play.

As such, the European Central Bank will be praying desperately not only for a competitive showing in the upcoming five ODIs against Australia, but also that Test results improve when the circus moves on to New Zealand.

Ballance did not feature in the series, Ball featured only in the first test and Curran was a late addition to the squad before turning out in Melbourne and Sydney. "We will miss him but we know he is not going to be part of this series so we can address the balance of this side", he added.

Sam Billings, Jason Roy, David Willey and Buttler have been playing in Australia's Big Bash T20 competition, while Morgan, Alex Hales, Liam Plunkett and Adil Rashid took part in the inaugural T10 League in the United Arab Emirates last month. It gives clarity to everybody in the team.

"I'm a lot more assured with my red-ball game than I am in T20 cricket so I'll definitely go into the environment with a lot more confidence in my ability to perform, which will help me". An internal European Central Bank disciplinary hearing will not take place until Stokes's legal case has concluded, which has allowed Hales to return to global duty.
