Update on Pakistan’s T20 World Cup 2024 squad

Update on Pakistan's T20 World Cup 2024 squad

The wait is almost over for Pakistan cricket fans. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is expected to announce the squad for the upcoming T20I series against Ireland and England, along with the much-anticipated T20 World Cup team, within the next few days.

Sources suggest an 18-member squad will be named, tasked with defending Pakistan’s runner-up finish at the 2022 World Cup. With the official T20 World Cup squad submission deadline set for May 1st, the PCB has some flexibility. They can make changes until May 25th, subject to approval from the International Cricket Council (ICC).

To prepare for the challenges ahead, the PCB is considering a short training camp for the national side before they embark on their tour of Ireland. The tour kicks off on May 7th, with three T20Is scheduled. Following this, Babar Azam’s men will travel to England for a four-match T20I series starting on May 22nd. Both Ireland and England series will be crucial warm-up matches before the main event – the T20 World Cup 2024 held in the United States.

Pakistan’s World Cup group stage fixtures include matches against USA (June 6th), India (June 9th), Canada (June 11th), and Ireland (June 16th).

While Pakistan’s recent five-match T20I series against New Zealand ended in a tie (2-2), it’s worth noting that New Zealand fielded a depleted squad. Only four players from that series have made it to their final World Cup squad.

With the squad announcement imminent, excitement is brewing amongst Pakistani fans. The upcoming T20I series will offer a glimpse into the team’s preparation and form as they gear up to defend their World Cup title.

New Zealand squad for T20 World Cup 2024:

Kane Williamson (c), Finn Allen, Trent Boult, Michael Bracewell, Mark Chapman, Devon Conway, Lockie Ferguson, Matt Henry, Daryl Mitchell, Jimmy Neesham, Glenn Phillips, Rachin Ravindra, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee, Ben Sears (travelling reserve).
