England T20 World Cup 24 Team Details

Openers & Wicketkeepers

Jos Buttler, the England skipper, also led the team in the T20 World Cup 2022 and secured the title. He is determined to defend the championship and will continue to serve as the opener and wicketkeeper for the team. Buttler performed exceptionally well last year, scoring 325 runs in 11 games with a strike rate exceeding 147 and achieving three half-centuries.

Jonny Bairstow and Phil Salt are the best choices as openers and wicketkeepers for the England Squad in the T20 World Cup 2024. Bairstow’s performance in 2023 was outstanding; he played four T20I matches and scored 175 runs, including two half-centuries, with an average of over 58.

 
Phil Salt plays aggressively in the T20 format; he was the leading run-scorer in 2023 with 394 runs in 8 innings and an average of 169+. He also smashed 2 centuries last year. These three players can play a vital role in England’s batting lineup in the T20 World Cup 2024. Phil Salt is also securing 2nd position in ICC T20I batsman rankings.

Middle-Order

For the middle order, Harry Brook and Will Jacks are the best options in the England squad for the T20 World Cup 2024. Harry Brook, a hard-hitter, made 172 runs in 9 T20I matches with a strike rate of 162 and concluded with 1 century. Will Jacks is another middle-order batsman who scored 141 runs in 9 innings with a strike rate of over 146. He has proven to be a good choice as a number three batter.

Liam Livingstone, over the past few years, has proven to be a strong batsman in T20Is. In a total of 9 games played last year, he scored 194 runs. A high strike rate exceeding 153 was maintained during his batting performances, and he also achieved a half-century in one of the games.
Ben Stokes, a key middle-order batsman, delivered a match-winning performance in the 2022 T20 World Cup final. Focused on Tests in 2023 due to the Ashes, he will now shift his attention to the T20 format to bolster England’s campaign in the upcoming World Cup.

All-Rounders

England has strong all-rounders for T20s, including Chris Woakes, who excelled in the 2023 Ashes. In 7 T20 games last year, he scored 21 runs and took 4 wickets. As the ICC event in the West Indies approaches, Woakes is expected to play a key role for England.

Sam Curran, a strong all-rounder for England, is set to join the team for the ICC T20 World Cup 2024. He did well in T20Is last year, scoring 102 runs in 7 innings, including a half-century. With the ball, he took 8 wickets in 11 games at an average of 9.15. His performance makes him a valuable asset for the upcoming tournament.


Moeen Ali is a key player for England, especially in spin all-rounders. In 2023, he scored 110 runs and took 5 wickets in 11 games. He’s a dependable lower-order batter with lots of experience. So, for the T20 World Cup 2024, England is considering including Ali, along with Woakes and Sam Curran, as all-rounders in the squad.

Spinners

Adil Rashid is the star spinner for England in cricket. Last year, he took the most wickets in T20 matches for England – 14 wickets in 12 games, with an average of 22.85. He’s been doing well in ODIs and T20s for a few years. Now, he’s in the England squad for the T20 World Cup 2024.

Fast Bowlers

Reece Topley is likely the top-choice fast bowler for England in the T20 World Cup 2024. He’s been doing well in T20s for the past two years, taking 6 wickets in 3 matches last year with an economy rate of 7.47.

Mark Wood might join England’s T20 World Cup team because he did well in ODIs and Tests last year. Even though he played only one T20I game, he took important wickets in The Ashes 2023. He’s one of the fastest bowlers for England, and the pitches in West Indies could help him a lot.

Last year, Gus Atkinson caught everyone’s attention with his impressive performance. The right-arm pacer managed to secure six wickets in just three games, maintaining an average of 14.0. His consistent success in the T20 format is gaining recognition, and there’s a strong possibility that he will be chosen to represent England in the T20 World Cup 2024.

Jofra Archer will miss many games until the T20 World Cup in 2024 due to an injury. Even if he doesn’t play before the tournament, the selectors are making sure he’s in the T20 World Cup squad. Last year, Archer spent a long time off the field because of an injury. He played 3 T20I games and took 4 wickets with an excellent economy of 6.63. Archer is crucial for England’s T20 World Cup 2024 team.
