Babar Azam will captain Pakistan into the tournament, which they came runners-up in last time out in 2022, having recently regained the captaincy from Shaheen Shah Afridi. Shaheen will also be a part of the squad, leading Pakistan’s fearsome fast-bowling attack which also includes Naseem Shah, Mohammad Amir and Haris Rauf.

Pakistan are currently playing a warm-up series for the tournament in England, but the first of the four matches was washed out at Headingley. The changes from that 18-player squad to the one that will head out to the West Indies and USA, are three drop outs. None of Hasan Ali, Irfan Khan or Salman Ali Agha will make the trip.

Pakistan will begin their campaign against the Unites States in Texas on June 6, before the marquee clash against India in New York on June 9. They have two full members in their group, Ireland and India, with Canada also in the group alongside the USA.

Having come close to victory in the 2022 edition, the last few months have been turbulent in Pakistan cricket. They narrowly avoided losing a T20I series to against a second string New Zealand earlier this year, and were beaten by Ireland in a T20I earlier this month.
