England T20 World Cup Squad 2024: Big Guns Have Been Called Back for Title Defending; Butler Will Lead the Defending Champions

Defending Champions England has announced their squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup in the Caribbean Islands and the USA. The team announcement marks the beginning of the title-defending march of England. 

England’s preparations are in full throttle, and they have shown this to the world by announcing the squad for the T20 World Cup 2024. Some big names are called back for the upcoming T20 World Cup, and Jofra Archer is the most important among them. 

Jofra Archer has been out of international cricket for more than one year. He last played for England in March 2023. Archer was sidelined from international cricket due to an elbow injury. 

Experienced all-rounder Chris Jordan also made his comeback for the team. He has also been absent from the England squad for almost a year. His last appearance for England was dated back to September 2023. Will Jacks, Johny Bairstow, and Phil Salt are top-order batsmen. 

All-rounders Liam Livingstone and Sam Curren will provide the firepower down the order. Adil Rashid, Reece Topley, and Mark Wood will lead the bowling line for England in the 2024 T20 World Cup.

The majority of the players in this England squad were also part of the 2022 T20 World Cup-winning side. So these players know what it takes to be world champions and what kind of mentality is required to win this tournament. 

The 2024 T20 World Cup squad of England is loaded with experienced players, although they have some young blood in the form of Phil Salt and Will Jacks. But this team does not require young guns to fire, as they already have expertise in playing aggressive cricket. 

The England team will reach the Caribbean Islands on May 31 and play their first game of the tournament on June 4 against Scotland in Barbados. In the T20 World Cup 2024, England is placed in Pool B with Australia, Oman, and Scotland.
