England created history on 14 July 2019, winning their maiden ODI World Cup Trophy after defeating New Zealand in a highly exciting game.
As the ODI World Cup 2023 unfolds, here is the list of players who were part of England’s 2019 ODI World Cup squad but will not feature in the CWC 2023, which is scheduled to be played in India.
One notable absence from the England cricket team in the 2023 World Cup edition is Jason Roy, a key figure in their triumphant 2019 campaign. Roy, known for his explosive batting at the top of the order, played a pivotal role in England’s success, forming a formidable opening partnership with Jonny Bairstow. However, the right-handed batter did not make it to the 2023 World Cup squad due to various factors such as form, injuries, and team dynamics.
Eoin Morgan, a highly successful and influential captain for England, announced his retirement from international cricket after leading the team to victory in the 2021 T20 World Cup. His decision to retire extended to ODI cricket as well, marking the end of an era. Morgan’s leadership and batting prowess had been instrumental in England’s white-ball success, but with his retirement, England needed to find a new captain and middle-order batsman to fill his shoes in the ODI format.
Jofra Archer, one of England’s most exciting fast bowlers, had been plagued by injuries leading up to the 2023 ODI World Cup. His participation in the tournament was uncertain and hinged on his ability to recover and regain full fitness in time. Archer’s absence could have been a significant blow to England’s fast bowling department, as he had the ability to deliver crucial breakthroughs with his pace and accuracy.

Tom Curran had been a part of England’s ODI setup in the past, but his inclusion in the final 2023 ODI World Cup squad was uncertain. It depended on his performances leading up to the tournament and the selection decisions made by the England team management.
Liam Dawson, an all-rounder who could contribute with both bat and ball, had not been a regular feature in England’s ODI squad. His participation in the 2023 ODI World Cup was unlikely unless there were unexpected selection surprises or injuries to other players. England typically had several all-round options, and Dawson faced tough competition for a spot.
Liam Plunkett, an experienced fast bowler, had been a key part of England’s ODI setup in the past. However, as the 2023 ODI World Cup approached, it became evident that he was not part of England’s plans, and his chances of being included in the squad were minimal. England had been grooming younger fast bowlers, and Plunkett had not featured in recent matches.
James Vince, a stylish top-order batsman, had a sporadic presence in England’s ODI squad. His inclusion in the 2023 ODI World Cup was uncertain and depended on his form leading up to the tournament and the selection preferences of the team management. England had a competitive batting lineup, and Vince faced stiff competition for a spot in the team.
