The top eight teams in ODI cricket qualified for the tournament automatically, while Afghanistan and Bangladesh were forced to win their way into the tournament under the new format in a qualifying event, where they beat teams like Scotland and Zimbabwe.

The eight teams who made the tournament on rankings were hosts England, Australia, India, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Pakistan and the West Indies.

The biggest news from the squads was around the Australian squad, as Steve Smith and David Warner were included in the Australian squad for the tour.

England and Pakistan both named preliminary squads for the tournament prior to a five-game warm-up series during late April and early May. Both sides made three changes to their initial squads following the fifth and final warm-up game.

This page will be constantly updated as team news becomes available, with a full list of fixtures for the tournament also available on The Roar with Australian start times so that you won’t miss a moment of the action once the tournament gets underway.
