England is preparing for the next World Cup with a limited-overs tour to the West Indies. Jos Buttler has been appointed as the captain for the upcoming tour, which will include 3 ODIs and 5 T20Is. The team for the tour includes only six players from the 2023 World Cup squad as England begins a rebuilding phase. The first two 50-over matches will be in Antigua, providing an opportunity for the team to establish new long-term strategies. Moeen Ali has secured his spot in the T20I squad, while Dawid Malan has been left out. The series holds significance for the West Indies as it marks their return to international cricket after failing to qualify for the ICC World Cup 2023.
