England will play one more series before they bid to become T20 World Cup champions in Australia this autumn.
Moeen Ali recently led the T20 side to series victory over Pakistan, winning the final decisive match by 67 runs and take what had been an historic series to a 4-3 win.
The seven-match competition meant England were able to explore options both with bat and ball, with players such as Harry Brook and Reece Topley excelling in their fields.
Now, Jos Buttler will return to his role as captain after recovering from his ankle injury and lead the white-ball side in a three match warm-up series against Australia as the team make their final preparations for the Super12 competition.
Australia are the current holders of the T20 World Cup after beating New Zealand in the 2021 final. However, with a new head coach and captain taking charge of the England squad, the ODI World Cup holders will hope they can compete to hold both trophies before the year is out.
