Jofra Archer has missed out on the preliminary 15-man England squad but has been included in a 17-man squad to play the Pakistan ODI series as well as the 14-man squad for the Ireland ODI and Pakistan T20.
Prior to the announcement a few spots were in question, Archer or no Archer, David Willey or Tom Curran and if there would be room for Liam Plunkett who has not been in his best form
Chris Jordan has also been included in these squads which leaves the door open to these two players to be included in the final 15-man squad if they perform well.

England will come into the tournament as one of the favorites and will be enjoying home conditions and good crowds. They(England) start their campaign on 30 May against South Africa at The Oval.
