Jofra Archer drafted into England's World Cup squad

Pacer Jofra Archer drafted into Englands World Cup squad

London, May 21: England have drafted in Jofra Archer to their 15-man squad for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, and it was one among the three changes the selectors made on Tuesday to the provisional squad which was announced last month.

Sussex's Archer is called up after his debut in the ODI series against Pakistan. The 24-year-old fast bowler played two matches in England's four-nil series victory over the past month.

Hampshire's Liam Dawson returns to the England set-up for the first time since sustaining a side strain during October's limited-overs tour of Sri Lanka. The 29-year-old left-arm spin-bowling all-rounder has been in fine form for his county, claiming 18 wickets and averaging 45 with the bat during Hampshire's run to the Royal London One-Day Cup final.

James Vince, the classy Hampshire top-order batsman, is also included having played his part during the Royal London ODI series against Pakistan. The 28-year-old will be looking to add to his 10 caps during the tournament.

From the preliminary squad that was announced last month, Kent's Joe Denly and Yorkshire's David Willey miss out on selection. The squad will report to the Ageas Bowl, Southampton on Friday ahead of the warm-up fixture against Australia on Saturday.

The squad: Eoin Morgan (Captain), Joe Root, Moeen Ali, Jose Buttler, Jonny Bairstow, Jofra Archer, Liam Dawson, Tom Curran, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, James Vince, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood
