Smith fires Maxwell warning
Steve Smith says Glenn Maxwell needs to make a number of improvements after being dropped from Australia's one-day side.
Australia have named their one-day squad which will face England, but it does not include all-rounder Maxwell, who was part of the World Cup-winning side in 2015.
Explosive batsman Chris Lynn gets the nod instead with Jhye Richardson and Andrew Tye providing pace-bowling back-up for Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood.
"We want consistent performances from him," said Smith. "If he keeps switched on, trains well and focuses on basics more than expansive things, that will help him have consistency and if he's doing that, you want him in the team."
Smith added: "Looking at the way he trains, he could train a bit smarter.
"We've seen the way he can play and do all his funky stuff and be pretty cool with that, but when he puts his head down he's a really good batsman."
Elsewhere, wicketkeeper Tim Paine is in line to play his first ODI for seven years after forcing his way back into the Test side.
