Regulars Glenn Maxwell and Matthew Wade were axed from Australia’s squad on Wednesday for this month’s one-day international series against England.

Chief selector Trevor Hohns said ODI specialist Maxwell was omitted over consistency concerns, while Tim Paine takes the wicketkeeping gloves from Wade following his outstanding form in the Ashes Test series.

Selectors also named Australia’s Test pace trio — Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins — and prodigious Twenty20 batsman Chris Lynn for the five-match series, starting in Melbourne on January 14.
