England Name 15-Man Squad For Cricket World Cup

England have added Sussex paceman Jofra Archer to their 15-man squad for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup, with David Willey the unfortunate man to miss out.

Hampshire left-arm spinner Liam Dawson also returns to the England set-up, replacing Joe Denly, while county team-mate James Vince is a final addition to England’s initial preliminary squad named – in for the axed Alex Hales.

Archer is called up after impressing in his debut ODI series for England against Pakistan. The 24-year-old fast bowler played two matches in England’s 4-0 series victory after making his debut against Ireland last month.
England’s squad will report to The Ageas Bowl in Southampton on Friday ahead of the first of two final warm-up fixtures before the World Cup. They play Australia on Saturday and then Afghanistan at The Oval on Monday.

The Cricket World Cup gets under way on Thursday, May 30 as England take on South Africa at The Oval.
