Chopping & changing of Cricket World Cup Squads of different country is on as deadline for squad change ends. This means teams will not be able to modify their squad after May 23. The preparation is one with full swing and every team is trying to make sure best fit players fly to England and Wales for 2019 cricket world cup. So, here are the new inclusions and deductions to world cup squads of various teams so far.
Pakistan Cricket World Cup Squad:
Wahab Riaz receives a last minute call to Pakistan cricket world cup squad while Mohammad Amir, already in contention, has found a spot, too.

Amir could not play the last series against England due to chicken pox. Junaid Khan and Faheem Ashraf have been left out on last moment because of what chief selector, Inzamam-ul-Haq called ‘below par’ performance in the recently concluded England series which Pakistan lost 4-0 to England.
England Cricket World Cup Squad:
Jofra Archer makes it to 15-member England cricket world cup squad. Liam Dawson has also found a spot as a back-up spinner and Joe Denly has been sidelined. The third change to the England team squad is that of James Vince replacing Alex Hales. David Willey has been left out to pave the way for top-performer Jofra Archer.
Injuries That Might Have had changed Cricket World Cup Squads
In addition to the inclusions and deductions, there were also many cases of serious injuries to players named in the squad. Kedar Jadhav had received an injury in his left shoulder in the IPL 2019. He has been declared fit to fly for England and Wales. It means any changes to the Indian cricket team for 2019 cricket world cup have been put to rest.
South Africa‘s Kagiso Rabada and Dale Steyn, too, had received injuries in the recently concluded IPL and both had to leave the tournament midway. But they have both been declared fit by the head coach, Ottis Gibson, hence any change in the South African squad is unlikely to take place.
