England are already out of the ODI World Cup 2023. The defending champions have really performed poorly in the tournament. Jos Buttler’s side has had a disappointing tournament in India. They failed to qualify for the knockouts and finished in the 7th position in the points table. Though they have confirmed their place for 2025 Champions Trophy that is scheduled to take place in Pakistan.
The team has dropped 9 players who were a part of the World Cup from their squad for the Caribbean tour. The Three Lions will tour the Caribbean for a multi-format limited-overs series in December 2023. The 2019 champions won their last two games and finished their campaign on a high note. Skipper Jos Buttler along with Gus Atkinson, Harry Brook, Brydon Carse, Sam Curran, and Liam Livingstone are the only players retained in the squad. Josh Tongue and John Turner are the new inclusions in both squads for the West Indies tour
