Archer, Dawson named in England squad

Jofra Archer of England bowls during the One Day International cricket match against Ireland at Malahide Cricket Club, Dublin, Ireland Friday May 3, 2019.

Archer was also omitted from the initial squad but the Barbados-born paceman has been named after making a positive impression during England's 4-0 one-day global series defeat of Pakistan.

Archer said his experiences in the Indian Premier League (IPL) with Rajasthan Royals will stand him in good stead for the intensity of a home World Cup.

Virat Kohli's wicket will be something that every opposition bowler in the World Cup 2019 would be targetting and Joffra Archer is no different.

Willey, who has been dropped from the provisional squad to make way for Archer, previously voiced his concerns about Archer being parachuted in despite limited involvement in the four-year cycle between World Cups.

Born in Barbados to a British father, right-arm fast bowler Archer has been named in the squad despite having only played in three one day internationals for England. "I've only just got into the side and I don't expect to be selected straight away for the Test team".

There was no place also in a squad, again captained by Eoin Morgan, for back-up spinner and batsman Joe Denly, with Hampshire slow left-armer Liam Dawson - who did not feature against Pakistan - recalled as cover for Adil Rashid, who is nursing a shoulder problem.

National selector Ed Smith said Jofra Archer's selection was a straightforward decision.

England reduced their qualification period from seven years to three, a move they insisted was exclusively to bring them into line with the rest of the world rather than advance the selection of paceman Archer - whose father is English.

The 50-over World Cup will take place in England and Wales from May 30 to July 14.

Denly was lined up as a utility option, a flexible batsman and a late-blooming legspinner, but England used him sparingly as a bowler against Pakistan.

Jofra Archer, Tom Curran and Liam Dawson have been named in England's 15-man squad for the Cricket World Cup, announced on Tuesday.

But James Vince, who featured against Pakistan, came in after England decided against selecting Hales following his ban for recreational drug use. Hales, who was initially part of the 15, was then replaced by James Vince in the Pakistan series.
