Profile

A regular member of England's ODI squads through the four-year cycle building up to the 2019 World Cup, David Willey was squeezed out on the eve of the tournament by the newly qualified Jofra Archer. Willey later described his dropping as "the worst thing that can happen" to a player but vowed to fight for continued recognition, winning Man of the Series on his return to the side 12 months later, during the summer of Covid-enforced bio-bubbles.
