London:

Graham Onions has replaced Andrew Flintoff in the England squad for the Champions Trophy and has also been called up for the current one-day series against Australia.

Knee surgery forced allrounder Flintoff to withdraw from the squad for the Champions Trophy, which runs from Sept. 22 to Oct. 5 in South Africa.

Onions is yet to make his ODI debut, but has been called up as cover for England's bowling unit.

He will join up with the team Tuesday, a day before the third ODI against Australia at the Rose Bowl. England is trailing 2-0 in the seven-match series.
