Australia all-rounder Shane Watson will be rested for the next three One-Day Internationals (ODI) against England.

It had already been announced that he would miss the second game of the five-match series, having played in every Ashes Test and the opening ODI win.

Fellow all-rounder Dan Christian has been added to the squad.

Watson made a two-ball duck and bowled five wicketless overs in Australia's six-wicket win in Melbourne on Sunday.

Fast bowler Mitchell Johnson was rested for Sunday's game but returns for the second match in Brisbane on Friday.
