Hobart - England selectors have opted for Matt Prior as wicketkeeper ahead of Steve Davies in the 15-man squad for the World Cup starting next month in the Indian subcontinent.

Prior is playing domestic cricket in Australia while Davies has been the gloveman for England in its last six limited-overs internationals.

The 28-year-old Prior is now expected to join the England squad ahead of the second ODI against Australia in Hobart on Friday.

England announced its World Cup squad in a statement from Australia on Wednesday, hours ahead of the International Cricket Council deadline.

Squad: Andrew Strauss (captain), James Anderson, Ian Bell, Tim Bresnan, Stuart Broad, Paul Collingwood, Eoin Morgan, Kevin Pietersen, Matt Prior, Ajmal Shahzad, Graeme Swann, James Tredwell, Jonathan Trott, Luke Wright, Michael Yardy.
