Cricket: Warner & Clarke return puts power into Australia ODI squad

SYDNEY (AFP) - Australia recalled Ashes destroyer David Warner and Test captain Michael Clarke, adding power and class to the one-day squad unveiled on Tuesday to face England in the first three of five matches.

"David Warner has won back his place in the Australia ODI squad with his outstanding recent form," said national selector John Inverarity.

"Michael Clarke, Shaun Marsh and James Pattinson have been included after being unavailable through injury for the series against India in October."

Australia have comprehensively outplayed England to take a 4-0 Ashes lead and are a strong bet for a total whitewash when the final Test opens on Sydney on Friday.
