Surrey Trio in England World Cup Squad

Published: 17th April, 2019

Surrey trio Jason Roy, Tom Curran and Liam Plunkett have all been named in England’s initial fifteen man squad for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.

The three have also been selected in the squad to play Ireland and Pakistan in England’s final One Day International series before the tournament gets underway, at the Kia Oval, against South Africa on Thursday May 30th – as well as a fourteen man group to play T20 Internationals against Ireland and Pakistan.

All three players have been England regulars for a number of years, playing a key role as Eoin Morgan’s powerful side solidified their position as favourites for their home World Cup, playing a charismatic and effective brand of cricket.

The five match series against Pakistan kicks off at the Kia Oval on Wednesday May 8th, an encounter in which exciting fast bowler Jofra Archer could be making his first ODI appearance for England on home soil – a game for which there are still tickets available, priced from just £45 for adults and and £22.50 for children.

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.

“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.”
