Mark Wood named in provisional World Cup squad & 15 for Pakistan series

England Men’s selection panel have named a provisional squad for the ICC T20 World Cup 2024 in the West Indies and United States of America starting in June and the preceding four-match Vitality IT20 series against Pakistan, 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.

Selected players, currently playing in the Indian Premier League, will return in time for the series against Pakistan, which gets underway at Headingley on Wednesday 22 May 2024.

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.
