England has unveiled its squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024, with notable inclusions and exclusions sparking intrigue among cricket enthusiasts.

Chris Jordan’s return to the international fold headlines the announcement, as the seasoned campaigner earns a recall at the expense of Chris Woakes. Additionally, the squad sees the inclusion of Jofra Archer, marking his anticipated comeback to competitive cricket after a lengthy hiatus.

Jordan, who last donned the national colors in September 2023, clinching his 88th T20I cap, is part of a 15-man ensemble that also features the uncapped Lancashire left-arm spinner, Tom Hartley. Archer’s inclusion comes on the heels of his recovery from a lingering right elbow injury that sidelined him from action since May 2023. Hartley, renowned for his stellar performance earlier this year against India, secures the second frontline spinner’s role ahead of Rehan Ahmed.

The decision to recall Jordan and omit Woakes stands as the primary surprises in Jos Buttler’s squad, entrusted with the daunting task of defending England’s 2022 T20 World Cup title. With Jamie Overton ruled out due to a back injury, Jordan’s utility as a lower-order batsman, coupled with his prowess in the field and as a death bowler, bolsters England’s depth in crucial facets of the game.

Woakes’ absence from the squad marks the end of an era, considering his pivotal role in England’s limited-overs success, notably in their triumphant 2019 ODI and 2022 T20I World Cup campaigns. While his omission may raise eyebrows, it underscores England’s strategic shift and evolution in their T20 approach. Meanwhile, Ben Stokes’ decision to make himself unavailable for selection further underscores the transitional phase the team is undergoing.

Looking ahead, selected players currently plying their trade in the IPL will rejoin the squad in time for the series against Pakistan, commencing on May 22 at Headingley. Subsequently, the team will embark on their journey to the Caribbean on May 31, gearing up for their opening group match against Scotland in Barbados on June 4.
