England Announces 15 Man Squad For the T20 World Cup 2024

All eyes will be on the Philip Salt who has shown lethal form with the bat in ongoing IPL season for Kolkata Knight Riders.

England’s title defence in the upcoming T20 World Cup is extremely important, given their victory in the last edition, which was hosted in Australia, where they clinched victory over Pakistan in the final.

Jos Buttler’s leadership will guide the team’s campaign, bringing experience and tactical acumen to the team. Jofra Archer’s return from an extensive injury layoff strengthens England’s lineup, bringing pace and skill to their bowling attack. 

England’s top-order options include Will Jacks, Phil Salt, and Jonny Bairstow, each of them can provide explosive starts to innings. Ben Duckett, who adds left-handed diversity to the squad, complements the experienced all-rounder Moeen Ali in the batting lineup.

The team’s lower order is led by Harry Brook, Liam Livingstone, and Sam Curran, all of them are noted for their ability to accelerate scoring and end innings strongly. Adil Rashid leads the spin attack, which is supported by the growing talent of Tom Hartley, giving England a balanced bowling arsenal capable of applying pressure on opposing batters and controlling the flow of runs.

Recent form of each player and why they’re selected in the Squad

Jos Buttler(c) – Jos Buttler’s leadership and batting ability make him a key component in England’s T20 World Cup Squad. As captain of the defending champions, he brings tremendous experience and the ability to provide explosive starts.

With 799 runs in 27 World Cup innings at an excellent average of 42.1 and a strike rate of 144.5, Buttler’s performance will be critical to England’s triumph in 2024. 

Phil Salt – Phil Salt’s addition adds excitement to the squad, as his explosive batting style and recent good performances earned him a position among the squad. Since 2023, Salt has scored 394 runs in 8 innings since 2023, with a great average of 56.3 and a magnificent strike rate of 169.1, making him a formidable top-order choice.

Will Jacks – Will Jacks’ amazing performance in several T20 leagues around the world has won him a spot on England’s World Cup roster. With 141 runs in 9 innings at a strike rate of 146.9, Jacks adds solidity to the middle order and a useful right-arm off-spin bowling option, giving the squad more balance.

Jonny Bairstow – Jonny Bairstow’s experience and power-hitting ability make him an important asset for England, and he is expected to play at number four to help stabilize the middle order.

Despite mediocre performance in previous World Cups, collecting only 85 runs in 11 innings, Bairstow’s ability to unleash powerful strokes cannot be underestimated, providing strength to England’s batting lineup.

Harry Brook –  Harry Brook, a rising star with immense potential, adds vitality and depth to the team. Brook’s improvement and development make him a fascinating potential for England’s middle order, despite his modest previous World Cup results of 56 runs in 5 innings.

Liam Livingstone – Liam Livingstone’s role as a power hitter and finisher in the lower order strengthens England’s batting lineup.

With 101 runs and 9 wickets in 9 World Cup matches, Livingstone’s effectiveness extends beyond batting to include a few overs of spin. His ability to create critical breakthroughs with the ball adds value to his overall attributes.

Moeen Ali – Moeen Ali’s extensive T20 cricket experience makes him an invaluable addition to England T20 World Cup Squad, capable of delivering late-order fireworks with the bat and providing a useful off-spin option. With 254 runs and 12 wickets in 17 World Cup innings, Ali’s ability to contribute with both bat and ball provides flexibility to England’s lineup.

Sam Curran – Sam Curran’s left-handed medium-pace bowling and batting skills make him an effective all-rounder for England. He stood out in the 2022 T20 World Cup, taking the most wickets (13) with an excellent economy rate of 6.53, winning him Player of the Tournament award.

Adil Rashid – Adil Rashid’s role as a leg-spin bowler will be critical in spin-friendly conditions, especially in the Caribbean and the United States.

With 21 wickets in 22 World Cup matches and an economy rate of 7, Rashid’s ability to deceive batters with his variations strengthens England’s spin attack, making him an important component in their T20 World Cup campaign. 

Mark Wood – Mark Wood’s blistering pace and ability to frequently clock speeds of 150 kmph make him a threatening bowler capable of unsettling batsmen. Wood’s ability to take wickets offers depth to England’s pace attack, as he has 9 wickets in 6 World Cup matches with a strike rate of 14.7. 


Reece Topley – Reece Topley’s tall height and ability to generate bounce make him a significant addition to England’s bowling squad.

Topley’s left-arm pace brings diversity to England’s pace attack, providing challenges to opposing batsmen. He has 28 wickets in 25 T20Is with a strike rate of 19.2.

Chris Jordan – Chris Jordan’s reputation as a death bowling specialist adds versatility to England’s pace bowling options.

Despite potentially not starting in every match, Jordan’s 21 wickets in 18 World Cup matches showcase his ability to make an impact in crucial situations. Furthermore, his abilities as a superb fielder and useful lower-order batter increase his worth to the squad.

Jofra Archer – Jofra Archer’s return to the England squad adds to the excitement, given his electric pace and bowling ability. Despite limited appearances in the previous year, with four wickets in three T20Is, Archer’s presence promises excitement and impact in the upcoming T20 World Cup. 

Tom Hartley – Tom Hartley’s inclusion as a left-arm orthodox spinner expands England’s bowling options. Although he has yet to make his international debut, Hartley’s performances in England’s domestic T20 circuit suggest that he has the ability to contribute significantly in the T20 World Cup.

Ben Duckett – Ben Duckett’s role as a left-handed top-order batsman provides depth to England’s batting lineup. With 315 runs in 12 matches at a stellar strike rate of 145.2, Duckett’s ability to provide attacking start at the top order adds value to England’s squad, offering a reliable backup option in case of need.
