Cricket: Willey 'still disappointed' over World Cup exclusion

Willey admits he's still disappointed about his exclusion from England's squad which won last year's World Cup. Willey: "I was pretty realistic, I hadn't been bowling as well as I probably had done in the previous years leading up to that. We knew someone was going to miss out, so it was going to be disappointing for whoever that may be and I know I was probably one of the guys that was in contention to miss out. That's part and parcel of sport, there's tough decisions that have to be made and ultimately we were on the receiving end of it. Being left out didn't mean the guys I'd spent all this time with, I didn't want them to do well. Obviously, bitterly disappointing and that's what you dream about as a kid, going out and playing at a World Cup on home soil, but it didn't mean that I didn't want the guys to go out there and go all the way and win which they did, and it was fantastic that they went on to do that, I'm still disappointed I wasn't part of that but it was obviously brilliant for them and English cricket."
