After England’s disastrous loss to Australia in the Ashes, the selection committee has decided to remove eight players.
The eight players are James Anderson, Stuart Broad, Jos Buttler, Rory Burns, Haseeb Hameed, Dawid Malan, Sam Billings and Dom Bess.
England performed poorly in last year’s Ashes tournament and scored less than 200 runs in all of their six innings. They couldn’t even touch the 300-mark in any of the Tests.
Anderson and Broad have performed brilliantly in the Ashes.
Anderson took eight wickets at an average of 23.37 and has 640 wickets to his name.
His partner at the other end, Stuart Broad took 13 wickets at an average of 26.30 and has 537 wickets to his credit.
Broad also moved past Bob Willis and Ian Botham to become England’s most prolific Ashes bowler.
The interim selection panel consists of Andrew Strauss, Paul Collingwood and James Taylor.
England are all set to leave later this month to the Caribbean for playing their overseas World Test Championship fixtures at Antigua, Barbados and Grenada, and would hope to win the series there, after winning one series back in 1968.
