England will field close to their best team “for the first time this summer” in the opening Twenty20 against Australia, says, captain Eoin Morgan.
The Ageas Bowl in Southampton will host the first of three Twenty20s on Friday.
Jos Buttler, Jofra Archer, Mark Wood, and Sam Curran return to the squad after missing the Pakistan T20 series because of their Test involvement.
“It means a huge amount. We’re seeing the majority of our best team on the park and that’s great,” said Morgan.
“I don’t think we have to go out and pick our best XI every series we play because we can’t put all our eggs in one basket.”
The second T20 will be live on BBC One and BBC iPlayer from 13:50 BST on Sunday. Australia is top of the International Cricket Council T20 rankings and England second.
The series will be followed by three one-day-internationals at Emirates Old Trafford from 11 September.
The T20 World Cup, due to start in Australia in October, was moved to India in 2021 because of the coronavirus pandemic.
England stars return to white-ball cricket
With Jason Roy missing because of a side strain, wicketkeeper Buttler will open the batting for England alongside Jonny Bairstow.
It means Tom Banton or Dawid Malan could miss out, despite both impressing in the drawn T20 series against Pakistan that finished on Tuesday.
All-rounder Ben Stokes, who missed the last two Tests and T20s against Pakistan to visit his ill father in New Zealand, is still missing, while Test captain Joe Root and all-rounder Chris Woakes are not part of the T20s but feature in the one-day squad.
England has been the fastest scoring team in T20 cricket since the 2016 World Cup, but have also been the most expensive with the ball.
