Last month's provisional team saw the much-anticipated return of the all-rounder, Ben Stokes. However, young talent Harry Brook and the swift bowler Jofra Archer did not find a spot. An unexpected twist saw Jason Roy missing out on the New Zealand series due to back spasms. This gave Brook another chance in the ODI team. Despite his lukewarm performance against New Zealand, Brook's recent achievements in international cricket paved his way into the final squad.

Roy's impressive 2023 record boasts two centuries from just six ODIs. There's speculation that he might be up for the team playing against Ireland this week. However, Ben Stokes outshone many with a record-breaking 182 runs off 124 balls against New Zealand. This has been the highest ODI score by any English male cricketer. Dawid Malan too has showcased his prowess, emerging as the top scorer against New Zealand and achieving his fifth ODI century.
