Sussex fast bowler Jofra Archer has been named in England’s 15-man squad for the World Cup.

Archer has secured his place after impressive performances in recent 50-overs internationals against Pakistan and Ireland.

His selection was confirmed this morning.

Liam Dawson came in from the cold to take his place in England's World Cup squad, with Joe Denly and David Willey missing the cut.

Dawson, the Hampshire spinner, played the last of his three one-day internationals in October and was not involved in the recent 4-0 series win over Pakistan.

Both Denly and Willey were named in last month's provisional 15 but both men have seen their tournament dreams dashed.

Chris Jordan was released from the England set-up on Sunday and scored 158 not out on the first day for Sussex at Northants yesterday.
