England batter Harry Brook has been drafted into the ODI squad for the upcoming four-match series against New Zealand. This decision follows his recent performances, including the fastest century in The Hundred and pivotal contributions in the T20I series against New Zealand.

Recently, England’s head coach Matthew Mott had suggested that Brook might feature in the ODI World Cup squad. Although absent from the provisional squad, Brook’s bat has caused a rethink. Mott said that the squad is subject to change based on performances.

“There’s a lot of cricket before we play that first World Cup game. There are plenty of opportunities for players to put their hands up. I thought at the start of this series, and with his hundred in The Hundred, he (Brook) made a real statement. It is still open for debate and there will be plenty of cricket played in the next month. So we’ll see what that squad ends up looking like,” Mott said ahead of the first ODI against New Zealand.

The four-match series between England and New Zealand begins in Cardiff on September 8, providing both teams an opportunity to fine-tune their squads ahead of the World Cup, which kicks off on October 5 with a clash between these two sides in Ahmedabad.
