T 20 World Cup 2024: Can defending champions be the champions this year, again?

Team England- The T20 World Cup 2023 winner will be eyeing towards winning this tournament this time too. The team has not yet been announced, but Jos Buttler will lead the defending team for sure.

For opening, captain Josh Buttler and Phil Salt can come forward; they are currently playing in the IPL, and both are in very dangerous form. Jos The Boss has scored 319 runs in 9 matches by scoring 2 centuries; similarly, Phil Salt has scored 392 runs in 9 matches with a strike of 180 runs, so as far as expectations are concerned, both of them can open for the England team. 

 

In the 3rd position, as far as there is a chance, Will Jacks or Johnny Bairstow can come in. The form of both was not that special at the start of the IPL, but now a few days have passed, Will Jacks scored a century in 41 balls, and Johnny Bairstow also scored a century, showing that the England players are in form.

 

In the 4th position, England’s powerful batsman, Liam Livingstone, will come. He did not get a special chance in the IPL this season, but the England team has full faith in him. His profitable batting is a profit for the England team.

To bat at number 5 or 6, only Moeen Ali and Sam Curran can bat at this position. Both have great hitting abilities, and both can also bowl; Sam Curran can bowl fast, and Moeen Ali can bowl spin as well.

 

At no. 7, bowling all-rounder Chris Jordan can come, who also bowls fast bowling. The England team will have a lot of expectations from Jordan after he returns after a long time. We hope he performs well in this T-20 World Cup.

 

If we talk about the bowling department, the spin department of the England team will be on the shoulders of Adil Rashid. His T20 career is going very well. Moeen Ali and Liam Livingstone can also support him.

 

Jofra Archer, who has not played in a competitive match since May 2023 due to a chronic elbow ailment, is expected to be included in the provisional roster.

 

Jofra Archer with Chris Jordan or, as far as Mark Wood or Reece Topley is concerned, who will play among the two, then it is the England team that will decide, but England’s bowling looks quite impressive; they have bowlers who can bowl at a speed of 150 kmph; they also have spin bowlers; everyone is waiting to see England’s playing 11.

Possible England T20 World Cup squad: Jos Buttler (c), Phil Salt, Will Jacks, Jonny Bairstow, Ben Duckett, Harry Brook, Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali (vc), Sam Curran, Chris Jordan, Tom Hartley, Adil Rashid, Jofra Archer, Mark Wood, and Reece Topley.
