England Men's selection panel have named a preliminary squad for the ICC T20 World Cup 2024 in the West Indies and United States of America starting in June.  The squad will also take on Pakistan in the preceding four-match Vitality IT20 series, which gets underway next month in Leeds.

Sussex quick bowler Jofra Archer has recovered from his right elbow injury and is named in the squad. Archer’s last appearance at this level came over a year ago in England’s tour of Bangladesh in March 2023. 

Lancashire left-arm spinning all-rounder Tom Hartley is the sole uncapped player and, along with Surrey batter Will Jacks, are the only players not to feature at an ICC World tournament previously. 

 The World Cup squad will fly to the Caribbean on 31 May ahead of England’s opening group match against Scotland at the Kensington Oval, Barbados, on Wednesday 4 June.
