Pakistan are placed in Group A along with India in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced 15-member squad for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2024 on May 24. The global tournament will be jointly hosted by the West Indies and the United States in June. 

Star batter Babar Azam, who was handed back T20I captaincy from Shaheen Afridi earlier this year, will lead the Men in Green during the upcoming ICC tournament. PCB has included some inexperienced players like Abrar Ahmed, Azam Khan, Mohammad Abbas Afridi, Saim Ayub, and Usman Khan, in their 15-man squad.

Further, veteran players Mohammad Amir and Imad Wasim, who reversed their retirements earlier this year, have been named in the 15-man squad for the upcoming ICC event. Notably, Amir featured in the 2016 T20 World Cup, while Wasim was part of the 2021 World Cup campaign for Pakistan.

Interestingly, senior pacer Hasan Ali has been sidelined by the selection committee for the upcoming T20 World Cup in 2024.

The Men in Green had a stunning run in the T20 World Cup 2022, where they reached the grand finale. However, they suffered a heartbreaking defeat at the hands of England at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). Pakistan won the T20 World Cup in 2009.
