England Announces the Players Who Will Compete in 2023 World Cup


England has made a recent change in its squad for the 50-over World Cup to defend their title. They’ve included batter Harry Brook while excluding Jason Roy.

Harry Brook, who initially didn’t make it to England’s provisional World Cup squad, has now been included in the final squad, even though he had a series of poor performances in the recent matches against New Zealand.

However, his performance in the Indian Premier League and the Hundred tournaments caught the attention of skipper Jos Buttler. Jos Buttler has shown confidence in the 24-year-old and kept the door open for him in the squad, emphasizing that he has potential despite the recent setbacks.

Dawid Malan, who performed exceptionally well by scoring 277 runs in three ODIs against New Zealand and was honored as the player of the series, has secured his place in the squad. He is widely expected to be one of the top choices to open the batting for England in the upcoming World Cup.

As Jason Roy is currently unable to play due to a back injury, Dawid Malan stepped in as the opening batsman in the matches against New Zealand. The 36-year-old achieved a remarkable milestone by becoming one of the quickest English players to reach 1,000 runs in One Day Internationals (ODIs). He accomplished this feat in just 21 innings, matching the record set by Kevin Pietersen and Jonathan Trott.

Luke Wright, the national selector for the England men’s cricket team, expressed his confidence in the squad they have chosen for the World Cup in India. He stated, “We have selected a squad we are confident can go to India and win the World Cup.”

Luke Wright also highlighted the team’s strong pool of white-ball players, emphasizing their impressive performances during the series victory against a highly competitive New Zealand team. He mentioned, “We are blessed with an incredibly strong group of white-ball players which was underlined by the performances in the series win against a very good New Zealand team.”

Luke Wright further explained that the team’s strength forced them to make some challenging decisions regarding world-class players. Unfortunately, this meant that Jason Roy was left out of the squad, while Harry Brook was included in his place.

Jason Roy, who played a crucial role in England’s victorious 2019 World Cup campaign, decided to forgo his incremental contract with the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) in May. His choice was driven by the desire to participate in more franchise cricket tournaments.

In a noteworthy development, England’s all-rounder and test captain, Ben Stokes, has made a comeback to the One Day Internationals (ODIs) despite his earlier decision to retire from this format of the game.

Ben Stokes, who played a pivotal role in England’s triumphant 2019 World Cup campaign on their home turf, prepared for the upcoming World Cup by delivering an impressive performance. He scored a total of 235 runs in three innings against New Zealand, showcasing his excellent form.

This outstanding performance featured a remarkable innings of 182 runs off just 124 deliveries in the third match, which is now England’s highest individual score ever in One Day Internationals (ODIs). This exceptional achievement occurred earlier this week.

There were concerns about the fitness of bowlers Adil Rashid and Mark Wood due to injuries. However, both of them have been included in the squad for the World Cup.

England’s journey to defend their World Cup title will kick off with the first match of the tournament, scheduled for October 5th in Ahmedabad. In this opening match, they will face New Zealand, setting the stage for a rematch of the 2019 final.
