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.
It should be noted that England and Pakistan have both named preliminary squads for the tournament. They play a warm-up series in England during late April and early May, with Jofra Archer for England, and Asif Ali and quick Mohammed Amir added to the Pakistan squad for the series.
