Sydney:

West Australian middle order batsman Adam Voges has been added to the Australia limited-overs squad on its tour of England, Cricket Australia said on Tuesday.

Voges, 32, replaces injured wicketkeeper Brad Haddin, who had surgery on a fractured finger last week.

"With Brad Haddin's injury, the NSP (national selection panel) has taken the opportunity to add Adam Voges to Australia's squad for the seven one-day internationals against England," selection panel chairman Andrew Hilditch said in a statement.

"Adam will now stay with the squad ... before traveling with the team to the ICC Champions Trophy in South Africa."

Tim Paine, a 24-year-old Tasmanian wicketkeeper, had already been included in the Australia squad as the backup gloveman for Haddin. Paine, who can open the batting, made his ODI debut against Scotland last week.
