The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) on Wednesday announced England's 15-member squad for the upcoming 2019 World Cup which they will be hosting. A few of these players were also a part of the previous World Cup squad which was played in Australia and New Zealand in 2015. Here's the English squad.
Once again the English team will be led by Eoin Morgan and Jos Buttler will serve as his deputy. England are one of the strong contenders to lift the trophy. They have featured in three World Cup finals (1979,1987 & 1992) but failed to cross the final hurdle. The hosts had a forgettable World Cup four years back as they were knocked out in the group stage.
England are the fifth team to announce their World Cup squad after New Zealand, Australia, India and Bangladesh had announced their 15-member squad.
The deadline for announcing World Cup squads is April 23, but teams can be changed up to May 23.
The 12th edition of the World Cup will be played in England & Wales, in the United Kingdom.
The quadrennial event will commence from May 30. The final will be played on July 14 at the Lord's with a reserve day on July 15.
England will begin their World Cup campaign on May 30 against South Africa at the Oval.
