Strike bowler Stuart Broad, one of the heroes of England's 3-1 test series victory against India, has been left out of a 15-man squad for the five one-day internationals between the two teams.

Broad, who played for England at The Oval despite having a broken nose and two black eyes following an injury suffered during the fourth test match in Manchester, would miss the series to have specialist examination and treatment of a chronic right knee injury.

Test captain Alastair Cook, who led England's triumphant recovery after they had trailed 1-0 following defeat in the second test, was selected to captain the one-day side.

Eleven of the 15 players selected overnight were involved in the test series.

Batsmen Alex Hales and Eoin Morgan and bowlers Harry Gurney and James Tredwell have also been selected.

The series begins in Bristol next week.

England squad: Alastair Cook (captain), Moeen Ali, James Anderson, Gary Balance, Ian Bell, Jos Buttler, Steven Finn, Harry Gurney, Alex Hales, Chris Jordan, Eoin Morgan, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, James Tredwell, Chris Woakes.

Should Brendon McCullum open for the Black Caps?

Absolutely. He's the best option.

He's got my support but not for the long-term.

No. He's better suited down the order.

I'd like to see Rutherford get another go.

Bring back Two-metre Peter.
