Tough decisions to be made - Bayliss
Trevor Bayliss says selecting England's World Cup squad has become a "little bit hard" following the displays of certain individuals.
England's turnaround in limited-overs cricket has been nothing less than sensational, with the team going from an early exit from Pool A in the 2015 World Cup to now being the number one ranked ODI side.
Eoin Morgan's men are also ranked fourth in T20 cricket and they wrapped up a 3-0 series whitewash against the West Indies on Sunday in St Kitts with an eight-wicket victory.
Certain individuals have increased their chances of making England's squad for the 50-over World Cup and Bayliss admits his life has just got a whole lot harder.
"I think we're getting fairly close to the final 15," he told Sky Sports. "It's going to make our job a little bit hard with some of the performances in this T20 series.
"Obviously, the World Cup is a 50-over competition but we're going to have to have a good hard, long chat about that World Cup squad. We've got a one-dayer against Ireland and then five against Pakistan before we have to finalise that squad so there are some important games coming up.
"April 23 we've got to a 15 but we can change it right up until the May 22 so that Pakistan series will play a part, I think, in our final decision."
