Archer not in England's preliminary WC squad

London, April 17 (IANS) Uncapped pacer Jofra Archer was the only surprise absentee from England's preliminary 15-man World Cup squad, although he was named in the team for warm-up games against Pakistan and Ireland.

After a change in residency rules, Barbados-born Archer, 24, had qualified to play for England.

"The selection panel has been impressed with Archer's performances in domestic and franchise cricket," national selector Ed Smith was quoted as saying by BBC. "He is a talented and exciting cricketer," Smith remarked.
