Pakistan will kick-off their ICC T20 World Cup 2024 campaign against USA on June 6.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has announced 15-member squad for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2024. The marquee tournament will be jointly hosted by the West Indies and the USA in the month of June.

Veteran batter Babar Azam will lead the strong Men in Green side after he was once again handed over the white-ball captaincy earlier this year. On the other hand, right-arm speedster Haris Rauf made his much-awaited return to the side from injury.

Talented players Abrar Ahmed, Azam Khan, Mohammad Abbas Afridi, Saim Ayub, and Usman Khan earned their maiden T20 World Cup call-ups for the national side.

In a much-awaited return, veteran pacer Mohammad Amir and left-arm spinner Imad Wasim, who took back their retirement earlier this year, have been added to the 15-member squad for the upcoming ICC event. Amir played in the 2016 World Cup, while Wasim featured in the 2021 T20 World Cup.

In a surprising turn of events, veteran pacer Hasan Ali, who was part of the ODI World Cup 2023, hasn’t been included in the 15-man line-up for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024. 

While the rest of the eight Pakistan players who featured in the T20 World Cup 2022 have been picked once again for the upcoming global event.

The Men in Green are placed in Group A along with arch-rivals India, Ireland, Canada, and the co-hosts USA. They will start their campaign on June 6 against the USA. 

The Babar Azam-led side will take on India on June 9 at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York.

Pakistan squad for the ICC T20 World Cup 2024:

Babar Azam (captain), Abrar Ahmed, Azam Khan, Fakhar Zaman, Haris Rauf, Iftikhar Ahmed, Imad Wasim, Mohammad Abbas Afridi, Mohammad Amir, Mohammad Rizwan, Naseem Shah, Saim Ayub, Shadab Khan, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Usman Khan
