Harry Brook's World Cup dream still alive; gets added to England squads for New Zealand and Ireland series

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) announced their squad for the three-match ODI series against Ireland on Wednesday, September 6. In a major development, the star cricketer Harry Brook has been added to the ODI squad for both the New Zealand and Ireland series, which hints at the batter's potential inclusion in England's team for the ICC World Cup 2023.

Brook, 24, was the high-profile absentee when the current world champions announced a 15-member provisional squad to defend their title on August 16. Ben Stokes' shocking return from the ODI retirement and Joe Root's inclusion cost Brook a place in the World Cup team. But England captain Jos Buttler recently revealed that the Three Lions can consider Brook and other names for the World Cup team as they have till September 28 to submit their final squad. So Brook's expected inclusion in the ODI team for the New Zealand and Ireland series hints at the batter's potential inclusion for the mega tournament India.

England are set to clash against the Kiwis in a four-match ODI series starting on September 8 at home and have already announced a squad which is going to the World Cup. Stokes and Root's return forced Brook out of the team and the youngster reacted by smashing a quickfire century for Northern Superchargers in the Men's Hundred 2023 tournament followed by impressive knocks in the T20Is against the BlackCaps. 

Brook's form keeps his name under consideration for the World Cup but it will come at the expense of either Dawid Malan or Jason Roy. So, the trio will be looking to put their best performance against the Kiwis to impress Jos Buttler and the management.

England ODI squad for Ireland series: Rehan Ahmed, Harry Brook, Brydon Carse, Zak Crawley (c), Ben Duckett (vc), Sam Hain, Will Jacks, Craig Overton, Matthew Potts, Phil Salt, George Scrimshaw, Jamie Smith, Luke Wood

England squad for New Zealand series: Jos Buttler (c), Moeen Ali, Gus Atkinson, Jonny Bairstow, Sam Curran, Liam Livingstone, Dawid Malan, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, Reece Topley, David Willey, Mark Wood, Chris Woakes, Harry Brook
