ICC World Cup 2023: Brook Makes England's WC Squad As Roy Misses Out

Harry Brook has been selected for England's Cricket World Cup Squad after Jason Roy was dropped to make way for the dynamic young batsman.

Roy was included in England's provisional 15-man squad, but the selectors made a last-minute switch by naming brook instead for the tournament in India.

Roy missed the recent one-day internationals against New Zealand because of back spasms, leaving him unable to hold off the mounting calls for the big-hitting brook to be selected.

In Roy's absence, Dawid Malan is set to open the batting for England alongside Jonny Bairstow.

England will travel with eight of the squad that triumphed on home soil in the last world cup.

England play New Zealand in their opening match of the World Cup on October 5, with the 10-team tournament running until November 19.
