Overseas batsman Adam Voges looks set to resume his one-day international career for Australia after being named in their 15-man squad for the Champions Trophy in South Africa next month.

He replaces fellow Nottinghamshire star David Hussey in the squad for the tournament, which begins on September 22.
Voges will also join up with the tourists next week for two Twenty20 internationals against England before returning to county action.
Australian squad for Champions Trophy: Ricky Ponting (capt), Michael Clarke, Nathan Bracken, Callum Ferguson, Brad Haddin (wkt), Nathan Hauritz, Ben Hilfenhaus, James Hopes, Michael Hussey, Mitchell Johnson, Brett Lee, Peter Siddle, Adam Voges, Shane Watson, Cameron White.
