Archer’s in Article by Barbados Today Published on May 21, 2019

"David Willey was very unfortunate in missing out, he could easily have been in this World Cup squad, but that's sport".

However, the European Central Bank changed their protocol earlier this year to only a three-year stint allowing for national selection, meaning the 24-year-old has now been able to make his worldwide debut.

An in-form Liam Dawson was also included in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 England squad, who's last match was against Sri Lanka.

Predominantly opened the bowling for his team, Willey picked up 52 wickets at an average of 36.32, an economy rate of 5.75 and a strike rate of 37.9.

Joe Denly and David Willey drop out while James Vince replaces opener Alex Hales, who has not been selected due to an "off-field incident".

"Our values as a team include the words "courage", "respect", and "unity", symbolising the three lions on our cap, and taking that cap forward across all three formats and all squads", he added.

"We've seen Jofra Archer play against Pakistan and we've seen the skills he has", said Smith.

Chairman of selectors, Ed Smith, said today the decision to include Archer had been "straightforward".

"Every one of these guys should be proud of what we've achieved so far, the continuous improvement of performances throughout makes the selection meeting extremely hard", the Dubliner added.

Hailed as an "outstanding talent" by Smith, the 24-year-old paceman was delighted to get the nod.

"To be honest, I think worldwide cricket is probably the same intensity as the IPL", he added.

Archer's rise to prominence comes after only making his debut against Ireland last month, going on to star in England's ODI series win over Pakistan, in which the paceman played in two of the five-match series, which England won 4-0.

"I've got absolutely no regrets".

"Really exciting to be a part of a big summer for English cricket".

"It's a huge opportunity, we're looking to express ourselves and continue to play as we have in the last four years".

England begin their campaign against South Africa at The Oval on 30 May.

Archer said he believed that his experience of performing under pressure at the IPL would help him to deal with the spotlight of his maiden World Cup.

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

England are bidding to win the World Cup for the first time.

The England squad will report to the Ageas Bowl, Southampton on Friday ahead of the warm-up fixture against Australia on Saturday.
