England Squad for ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2024 Announced!

England Squad: England, the reigning champions of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, have announced their squad for the upcoming 2024 edition of the tournament. The squad selection sees the return of pace bowler Jofra Archer to the international cricket scene after more than a year due to injury. Archer’s last appearance for England was in March 2023, and he has since been recovering from an elbow injury that kept him out of action for over 12 months.

Archer’s journey back to the national team has been challenging, facing obstacles such as stress fractures, persistent elbow issues, and even surgery following a bizarre fish tank accident in 2021. Despite his prolonged absence, the experienced all-rounder Chris Jordan has also secured his place in the squad, with his last international appearance dating back to September 2023.

In the batting department, Jos Buttler will lead the team, with the likes of Will Jacks, Phil Salt, and Jonny Bairstow providing depth in the top order. Ben Duckett adds a left-handed option to the squad, complementing the veteran all-rounder Moeen Ali.

For the lower order, the team will rely on the firepower of Harry Brook, Liam Livingstone, and Sam Curran. Adil Rashid will lead the spin attack, supported by Tom Hartley.

The England squad for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 includes: Jos Buttler (c), Moeen Ali, Jofra Archer, Jonathan Bairstow, Harry Brook, Sam Curran, Ben Duckett, Tom Hartley, Will Jacks, Chris Jordan, Liam Livingstone, Adil Rashid, Phil Salt, Reece Topley, and Mark Wood. This squad will also feature in the upcoming four-match T20I series against Pakistan starting on 22 May.

All players currently participating in the Indian Premier League (IPL) will return in time for the T20I series against Pakistan. England will depart for the Caribbean on 31 May, ahead of their first match against Scotland in Barbados on 4 June. They are placed in Group B at the T20 World Cup, alongside Australia, Namibia, Scotland, and Oman.
