Unfortunate for Whoever Archer Replaces in England Squad: Woakes

Archer, rated one of the most valuable limited-overs players in the world because of his 90mph bowling, athletic fielding and aggressive batting, is now playing for Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League (IPL), alongside England internationals Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes.

England will name a provisional 15-man squad for the World Cup on Wednesday, alongside an expanded group of 17 for limited-overs series against Ireland and Pakistan next month.

The 24-year-old, who was born in Barbados but qualified to play for England last month after the European Central Bank amended its regulations, is likely to be named in the squad to play one-day internationals against Ireland and Pakistan next month.

He could still make the World Cup squad if he impresses in the warm-up games as changes can be made to it until 23 May.

Woakes said the pressure to perform will not just be on Archer, but everyone in the squad.

"He is a very talented and exciting cricketer".

Chris Woakes believes it would be unfair for England selectors to ask any player to make way for the uncapped all-rounder Jofra Archer in the World Cup squad.

He has played only 14 one-day matches in his career but has impressed in Twenty20 cricket.

"If he was to come in and someone was to miss out, it would be extremely unfortunate", Woakes was quoted as saying by BBC Sport. It probably wouldn't be fair, morally, but at the same time it's the nature of global sport.

"I don't think it would disrupt the team because everyone would find a way to move on and we're trying to win a World Cup for England - that's the bigger picture".

England enter the tournament as favourites, having not lost a one-day global series since a 2-1 defeat to India in January 2017, though an embarrassing one-off defeat to Scotland last summer was an ugly blip.
