Fast-bowler Jofra Archer has been named in the Jos Buttler-led 15-member preliminary squad that will represent defending champion England in the 2024 ICC T20 World Cup in the West Indies and United States of America starting in June.

Archer will be marking his return to international cricket for the first time in a year after recovering from his right elbow injury. Since 2021, he has faced several injury setbacks, ranging from stress fractures and recurring elbow issues to undergoing surgery following a mishap involving a fish tank.

The 29-year-old pacer's last appearance at the international level came over a year ago on England’s tour of Bangladesh in March 2023.

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

All teams are allowed to make changes to their squads until 25 May, after which any alteration will require approval from the ICC's Event Technical Committee.

Moreover, this squad will also take on Pakistan in the preceding four-match T20I series next month in Leeds.

England Cricket said that selected players, currently playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL), will return in time for the series against Pakistan, which gets underway at Headingley on 22 May.

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 4 June.

  • England Provisional ICC Men's T20 World Cup and T20 Squad vs. Pakistan Squad:

Jos Buttler (Captain), Moeen Ali, Jofra Archer, Jonathan Bairstow, Harry Brook, Sam Curran, Ben Duckett, Tom Hartley, Will Jacks, Chris Jordan, Liam Livingstone, Adil Rashid, Phil Salt, Reece Topley, and Mark Wood
