Jofra Archer was rewarded for impressing in his early auditions on the global stage by getting a late call-up to England's squad for the Cricket World Cup, as David Willey's worst fears were realised. In 2019, they go into a home World Cup as the No 1 side, with one of the most destructive batting line-ups the white-ball game has seen.
The Barbados-born quick was yet to make his England debut when the preliminary selection was made, but swiftly became a must-pick after acing his early auditions on the worldwide stage.
Dawson played the last of his three one-day internationals in October and was not involved in the Pakistan series. "It was a very hard situation". The Barbados-born fast bowler, by his own admission, is gunning to dismiss Virat Kohli at the World Cup 2019 as he failed to get rid of the India skipper in the recently-concluded Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019.
He added: "To be honest, I think worldwide cricket is probably the same intensity as the IPL".
"I'd quite like to get Virat Kohli out because I wasn't able to in the IPL", Archer told Sky Sports. "I've only just got into the side and I don't expect to be selected straight away for the Test team".

Big Ben sorry for ruining relationship with Brown
Pittsburgh relented in March, sending him to the Oakland Raiders in exchange for a pair of mid-round draft picks. In the same interview, the quarterback said he probably went too far in his radio show comments regarding Brown.
"I think I'm ready". I've played a lot of cricket around the world so I know how to deal with pressure.
Archer, whose father is English, only became eligible for England this year after a change to the ECB's rules in November.
However, as soon as Archer made his global debut and impressed with his express pace, speculations were rife that he would get the nod for the marquee event.
A good World Cup would also push Archer into contention for the Ashes series later in the summer.
The England squad will report to the Ageas Bowl, Southampton on Friday ahead of the warm-up fixture against Australia on Saturday. "We play (these guys) twice a (season) in the IPL, so you know their weaknesses, you know their strengths, you know if they can't run between the wickets... it gets you an extra bit of inside information", Archer said.
Top-ranked team England, who open the tournament against South Africa at The Oval, have never won a global 50-over trophy.
