WILTSHIRE cricketers Liam Dawson and James Vince have both been named in England’s squad for the World Cup.

Calne’s Dawson has come in from the cold to earn a place in the 15-man squad.

The Hampshire spinner played the last of his three one-day internationals in October and was not involved in the recent 4-0 series win over Pakistan.

Batsman Vince, who also plays his club cricket at Hampshire, has played a total of 10 ODIs, with the Steeple Ashton man involved in three of England’s four matches against Pakistan this month.

Both Joe Denly and David Willey were named in last month's provisional 15, but both men have seen their tournament dreams dashed.

Denly had been lined up as a utility option in the squad, a flexible batsman and a late-blooming leg-spinner, but England have used him sparingly as a bowler.

Head coach Trevor Bayliss has admitted that Dawson's slow left-arm spin is more reliable and a strong show in the Royal London Cup has pushed him over the line.

Willey, meanwhile, has paid for the emergence of the exciting Jofra Archer.

The Barbados-born quick was yet to make his debut when the preliminary selection was made but swiftly became a must-pick after acing his early auditions on the international stage.

The third and final alteration from the initial squad became a necessity when Alex Hales was discarded following off-field indiscretions. Vince was added in as his replacement ahead of the Pakistan series and holds his place.
