Harry Brook is chosen over Jason Roy as England’s ODI World Cup team squad


After performing in the Ashes Test series in the English summer against Australia, Brook’s absence from the provisional team had come as a surprise.

Despite having included the opening batter on a 15-man provisional list last month, defending champion England replaced Jason Roy with Harry Brook in its Cricket World Cup roster on Sunday.

Roy has appeared in more one-day internationals than any other England player since the 2019 title, which he helped seal with a pick-up and throw for a run-out against New Zealand.

However, Roy’s selection for the physically demanding Oct. 5-Nov. 19 event in India was clouded by a back ailment that prompted him to miss a four-match series against the Kiwis earlier this month.

Brook, a flexible batsman who can open or bat later down, was a surprise omission from the provisional team after shining against Australia in the Ashes Test series last summer in England. However, he struggled in the one-day international series against New Zealand, scoring 37 runs in three innings.

England will travel to India with eight of the squad who won the title as the home team four years ago.

Squad: Jos Buttler (captain), Moeen Ali, Gus Atkinson, Jonny Bairstow, Harry Brook, Sam Curran, Liam Livingstone, Dawid Malan, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Reece Topley, David Willey, Mark Wood, Chris Woakes.
