<a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/joe-denly/news/">Joe Denly</a> set his eye on sealing an <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/ashes">Ashes</a> berth and has moved on after failing to make the cut in England's final squad for the ICC World Cup 2019 that gets underway from Thursday. <p></p> <p></p>Denly was part of a provisional squad but following a wicketless outing in an ODI series against Pakistan during which he played two matches, he was dropped in favour of left-arm spinner <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/liam-dawson/news/">Liam Dawson</a>. <p></p> <p></p>Putting up a brave face, the 33-year-old says he has now refocused himself on performing in county cricket to put a strong claim for Ashes in August. <p></p> <p></p>"There s no point in me moping around," Denly told <em>BBC</em>. "I ve got to get on with it now and I m looking forward to putting in some performances for Kent and getting some County Championship runs under my belt." <p></p> <p></p>Dawson forced his way taking 18 wickets and averaging 45 with the bat for Hampshire guiding them to One-day cup final. <p></p> <p></p>Denly said Dawson deserved the call-up. "Before I got the call, I knew that was an avenue they could take and I was fully prepared for it. Liam Dawson is a fantastic cricketer and deserves his selection," he said. <p></p> <p></p>He added, "I ve got to get on with it now and put in some performances. There s a lot of cricket between now and the Ashes, so my focus is performing well for Kent and if that happens hopefully the Ashes selection will take care of itself."
