England are the current ODI World Champions. Interestingly, for the upcoming 2023 ODI World Cup, the Three Lions do not have a lot of changes from the squad that won the event back in 2019. In fact, most of the changes are mainly forced. On that note, here, we take a look at six England players who played in the 2019 ODI WC but won’t feature in the 2023 ODI World Cup.
England players who won’t feature in the 2023 ODI World Cup
Some of the big misses for England include Eoin Morgan and Jofra Archer. While Morgan has retired and moved on, Jofra is not a part of the provisional squad because he is yet to become fit. That said, if he regains his fitness in time, England may think about including him. While Liam Plunkett has moved to the USA, the other players have missed out due to combination or form issues. James Vince would have been a good choice but since Ben Stokes returned from retirement, the player did not stand a chance.

England will look to defend the title
England will yet again look to make a mark in the ODI World Cup. The template that they set in the white-ball formats is now the reference for all the other teams. If England plays to its full potential, there is no doubt in them going all the way again.
One of the issues for the squad will be the middle-order. While Joe Root has not played a lot of ODIs recently, Ben Stokes has only just returned from retirement. Jos Buttler is the best bet here while Moeen Ali can be inconsistent at times. Otherwise, the squad looks balanced and is set for another hit at the target.
