Michael Clarke is to captain Australia for the one-day series against Bangladesh as Ricky Ponting continues his recovery from wrist surgery.

Clarke led Australia in two one-day internationals against the West Indies in July after Ponting returned home.

Wicketkeeper Brad Haddin has been selected, despite breaking a finger, and opener Matthew Hayden, who has an Achilles tendon problem, is also in.

The series features three matches - on 30 August and 3/6 September in Darwin.
