LONDON - England have rested Ashes-winning star batsman Joe Root from their squads for both the upcoming lone Twenty20 international and five one-day internationals against Australia.

Root, the Ashes player of the series after his 460 runs played a central role in England's 3-2 win over the five Tests, has been a key player in all three international formats in recent times. But with England facing tough Test series away to Pakistan and South Africa later this year, England's selectors have decided to give the 24-year-old a break from international duty. Also omitted are senior bowlers James Anderson, currently out with a side strain, and Stuart Broad, whose stunning eight for 15 at his Trent Bridge home ground saw Australia skittled out for 60 in the third Ashes Test.

Neither Anderson nor Broad, as well as veteran batsman Ian Bell, have played a 50-over one-day international since this year's World Cup, which Australia won on home soil in March. Test skipper Alastair Cook, dropped from England's squad before the global showpiece, was again omitted from white-ball duty. Eoin Morgan will again captain both squads, having led England in their miserable first-round exit from the World Cup before overseeing a thrilling one-day series win at home to World Cup finalists New Zealand.

ENGLAND T20 SQUAD: Eoin Morgan, Moeen Ali, Sam Billings, Jos Buttler, Steven Finn, Alex Hales, Adil Rashid, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, Reece Topley, James Vince, David Willey and Chris Woakes.
