England has announced their squad for world cup 2019 today. Eon Morgan led the england team in 2015 world cup. This time also he will lead the team. In 2015 world cup, England performed poorly, they got out at group stages only. In fact, they even lost to Bangladesh in 2015 world cup. This time the world cup will be played at their home grounds so all odd are in their favor. They have announced a strong team this time.
For opening they have selceted Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy. As back-up opener they have added Alex Hales in squad. In middle order they have included Joe Root, Eon Morgan and Jos Buttler. Jos buttler has been included as wicketkeeper. As all-rounders they have selected Ben Stokes and Moen Ali. Adil Rashid has been selected as their main spinner. They have included Joe Denly as an extra spinner.
Big surprise is that they haven’t included Jofra Archer in world cup squad but has included him in series against Pakistan. In fast bowling they have added Chris Jordan, David Williey, Mark Wood and Liam Plunkett.
