BREAKING NEWS: Archer, Dawson named in England squad

Liam Dawson is a surprise inclusion in England's squad for the World Cup, while Jofra Archer takes a fast-bowling berth.

Jofra Archer and Liam Dawson have been included in the England squad for the Cricket World Cup.

Dawson was not in England's preliminary 15-man group but makes the final line-up announced on Tuesday.

Archer was also omitted from the initial squad but the Barbados-born paceman has been named after making a positive impression in England's 4-0 one-day international series defeat of Pakistan.

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”.
