Zampa returned to the team after paternity leave, and Cummins was on leave

Star leg spinner Adam Zampa returned to the Australian team after paternity leave. The Australian Cricket Board has announced the squad for the two ODI series against Zimbabwe and New Zealand in August-September, where star pacer Pat Cummins has been rested.

Aussies will play with a full-strength team against Zimbabwe at home. The three-match ODI series will be played on August 28 and 31 and September 3, and all matches will be played at Riverway Stadium in Townsville. After that, the Aussies will play three more ODIs against New Zealand on September 6, 8 and 11.

Meanwhile, Zampa was on leave from the entire tour of Australia when his child was born, and he returned after the leave. Ashton Agar, who could not play in the ODI series against Sri Lanka due to a back injury, has also returned to the team, and he is fit to play against Zimbabwe and New Zealand.

Sean Abbott has been added to the pace bowling department in place of Cummins. Apart from this, there is pace bowling all-rounder Marcus Stoinis in the team. Meanwhile, Travis Head took paternity leave after the jumper. As a result, he will not play against Zimbabwe and New Zealand. His child is likely to be born during this time.

Australia’s ODI squad for the two series:

Aaron Finch (captain), Sean Abbott, Ashton Agar, Alex Carey, Cameron Green, Josh Hazlewood, Marnus Labuschagne, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, David Warner, Adam Zampa
