    The preliminary World Cup squad is unchanged from the winter series against West Indies.

    Sussex fast bowler Jofra Archer is called up to the ODI squad for the first time. The 24-year-old, who was born in Barbados but has an English father and holds a British passport, completed a three-year qualification period on March 17. He is available for selection for the first time.

    He is joined in the squad alongside his Sussex teammate Chris Jordan. The athletic all-rounder returns to the ODI set-up for the first time since September 2016 after some impressive performances this winter against Sri Lanka and West Indies in the T20 format.

    The selectors, in consultation with the England management team, have rested Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes for the one-off ODI against Ireland in Malahide and the NatWest IT20 against Pakistan. Chris Woakes is also not included and will manage his workload leading into a busy summer while playing for Warwickshire.

    Sam Billings and James Vince have been added to the squad for the one-off ODI in Ireland and the IT20 against Pakistan at Cardiff.

    Players selected in the squads, who are currently playing in the Indian Premier League, will return to England on or before April 26.

    England will finalise their final 15-man World Cup squad after the five-match Royal London ODI Series against Pakistan, which culminates at Emerald Headingley on Sunday, May 19.

    Commenting on the selection of the squads, National Selector Ed Smith, said:

    “In line with ICC regulations, we have to name a preliminary squad of 15 for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup before April 23. However, all 17 players named in the Royal London ODIs against Pakistan can stake a claim to be in the final 15-man squad, finalised at the end of that series.

    “The selection panel has been impressed with Jofra Archer’s performances in domestic and franchise cricket. He is a very talented and exciting cricketer.

    “Chris Jordan, a regular in IT20 squads over the past few years, has continued to develop as a cricketer – as we saw in the IT20s in the West Indies. He fully deserves his return to the ODI squad.

    “With regard to resting players, we are conscious of managing player workloads leading into such an important summer so that players are in the best possible condition for the World Cup. That was also a factor in the way we have selected these three squads.”

    People are saying that it's going to be a dry summer, the fact that Joe Denly has been selected instead of Liam Dawson baffles me.

    What if Moin Ali is out of form and the wickets are aiding the spinners ?.Denly's role in the side is also questionable, after considering the presence of Alex Hales as a reserve opener in the side.

    I mean it's only one player. Also it's a new player not like when the same pakistani hags play for another chance.

    13 or 14 members of the playing XI were already decided before the series against Australia. Abid Ali or Shan Masood and Junaid vs Shinwari vs Hasnain were the main points of interest.

    The exclusion of uncapped all-rounder Jofra Archer was the biggest talking point as host nation England announced their preliminary 15-man ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup squad.

    From the back-up spinner to the back-up back-up batsman, we take a look at some of the major things to note following the announcement.

    No Jofra... yet

    It was the question on everyone’s lips, and virtually all England’s current crop of players had their say on whether the mercurial, prodigious all-rounder, who has starred in T20 leagues around the world but is yet to debut for England, having only qualified on 17 March, should get a World Cup call-up.

    Now we know, sort of. He’s not in the 15-man preliminary squad, but he has been picked to play Ireland and Pakistan in seven games which precede the cut-off date for finalising the World Cup squad. Should he make the step-up to international cricket seamlessly, the desire to add him to that squad could prove too tough to ignore.

    A lifeline for Jordan

    Archer isn’t the only Barbados-born yorker specialist to be simultaneously out of the squad but in contention. Chris Jordan hasn’t played an ODI since 2016, and had been earmarked as a T20 specialist. But through strong performances in the shortest format against West Indies, he has also been selected to face Ireland and Pakistan. Should he impress, a remarkable World Cup call-up may beckon.

    Denly defeats Dawson

    In an ideal world, your back-up spinner probably doesn’t play a World Cup game. But they remain a vital cog in the squad, ideally a level-headed cool customer who can turn up and do a job at the drop of a hat, or the twist of an ankle. Joe Denly, primarily a batsman who’s developed his leg-spin to be more than part-time, and Liam Dawson, a left-arm spinner and lower-order hitter, had emerged as the two potential deputies to Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid, with both earning selection for England’s tour of Sri Lanka.

    Joe Denly is the back-up spinner in England's World Cup squad

    With Denly’s selection, and by the fact that Dawson appears in none of the three squads announced, it’s clear who came out on top. Perhaps weighing in Denly's favour was that he gives the ball a proper rip, making him a potential wicket-taking replacement for the threat that Rashid offers. If Moeen comes a cropper, Joe Root’s bag of tricks could serve tidily enough as a fill-in option. Nevertheless, Denly can’t rest easy quite yet.

    Bowlers still have plenty to prove

    England selector Ed Smith has made it clear the pre-World Cup ODIs (and one-off T20I v Pakistan) are as much audition as rehearsal, with Jordan and Archer snapping at the heels of those in the preliminary squad. Perhaps with the exception of attack leader Chris Woakes, none of the quicks can feel truly secure.

    Liam Plunkett and others could be looking over their shoulders

    There has also been suggestion that England may go into the World Cup without a back-up spinner, allowing them to pick one of Archer or Jordan, reasoning that all the quicks perform subtley different roles, and therefore all warrant inclusion.

    Billings and Vince face off

    That Alex Hales is England’s premier back-up ODI batsman was not in doubt. Who comes into the squad if he or one of the regular batsmen get injured is less clear cut. Plenty of the mainstays have been rested for England’s ODI against Ireland and T20I against Pakistan, with Sam Billings and James Vince both included and likely to play.

    The role of the back-up to the back-up could well be served by whichever of the two impresses most in those two games.

    'Don't upset anyone now' - Hussain on Archer's exclusion from England's World Cup squad

    Former England captain Nasser Hussain endorsed England's decision to omit uncapped Jofra Archer from their preliminary ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2019 squad.

    While Archer does not feature in England's 15-man squad for the World Cup announced on Wednesday, 17 April, he has been added in the extended 17-member squad to face Pakistan in a five-match one-day international series and the 14-man squad for the one-off ODI against Ireland.

    Should he impress in the one-dayers, there is still a possible chance for him to make his way into the final squad, which England will name on 22 May. Hussain believes the preliminary squad will have no bearing on the final list and England have done the right thing in not upsetting anyone.

    "Don't upset anyone now," Hussain told Sky Sports News. "Bring this lad [Archer] in; he's got huge talent, huge potential, give him a go, keep the others on their toes and then make a decision. Don't go too early.

    "Why now, in this preliminary squad - which has no bearing, no meaning on the final squad - why show your hand now? Why tap on [Liam] Plunkett, [Tom] Curran or [David] Willey's shoulder, whoever, and say 'by they way, you're not involved'."

    Archer, who has an English father and holds a British passport, qualified to play for England on 17 March after completing his three-year qualification period. The former captain also added that Archer's exclusion will keep everyone on their toes as Archer's success in the matches against Pakistan could serve as an audition to wriggle his way into the squad.

    "We've seen others who have had to wait their time for qualification and who have not really shone as well as people thought. They'd have picked him but then would have to leave him out. This is absolutely the right way to go. It keeps everyone on their toes," the 51-year-old added.

    Echoing his fellow commentator's sentiments, former England cricketer David 'Bumble' Lloyd also agreed with the decision. "He [Archer] is an x-factor cricketer," Bumble opined. "He is a terrific athlete and they're going to bed him into this team. It's no secret at all that he will end up in the final 15 - this just delays the inevitable."

    While Archer has been terrific in T20 leagues around the world, according to Bumble, Eoin Morgan and co would like to ***** him on the basis of his performance in international cricket to make the final decision.

    "All eyes will be on that final 15, and Archer will be in it. He could be the missing piece of the jigsaw, but they're having a good look at him first. England are a wonderful team, and I think they're still favourites for this World Cup.

    "They have a great squad, a really good leader in Eoin Morgan, and I think that selection has Morgan stamped all over it - 'We'll have a little look first, and then we'll get him in'", he concluded.
