Captain: Eoin Morgan

Replaced Alastair Cook in December and charged with rejuvenating the team with his bold and innovative leadership style. Led the side to Tri-Series final against Australia but a heavy defeat raised familiar doubts about the England side.

Coach: Peter Moores

In his second spell in charge of the team. Bowed to pressure to fire the under-performing Cook as captain and desperate to mark his mark in a major tournament for the first time.

Squad - Eoin Morgan (captain), Moeen Ali, James Anderson, Gary Balance, Ian Bell, Ravi Bopara, Stuart Broad, Jos Buttler, Steven Finn, Alex Hales, Chris Jordan, Joe Root, James Taylor, James Tredwell, Chris Woakes.

Key batsman: Ian Bell

The senior batsman has struck a rich vein of form at the top of the order and will play a key role in building the innings, while the more flamboyant stroke-makers around him make hay. England’s leading one-day international run-scorer.
