England T20 World Cup Outright odds

England go into June's T20 World Cup in the West Indies and the USA as defending champions, having beaten Pakistan in the 2022 final in Melbourne.

Their defence of the 50-over World Cup in India last autumn ended in a disappointing group-stage exit, but captain Jos Buttler leads a vastly experienced squad featuring 10 players who lifted the T20 trophy two years ago.

England coach

Matthew Mott

While Brendon McCullum is in charge of the England Test team, Australian coach Matthew Mott has led them in white-ball cricket since May 2022.

Mott, a former coach of New South Wales, Glamorgan and Australia Women, made an instant impact at the successful T20 World Cup campaign in November 2022 but he is under pressure after last year's 50-over World Cup, where England failed to make the semi-finals.

England captain

Jos Buttler

Jos Buttler is regarded as one of the world's most destructive limited-overs batsmen and he has made more than 350 international appearances for England in Test, ODI and T20 cricket.

Buttler was appointed England's white-ball captain in June 2022 following the retirement of 2019 World Cup-winning skipper Eoin Morgan.

The opening batsman led the side to T20 World Cup glory later that year, scoring an unbeaten 80 in the 10-wicket semi-final rout of India, and he was the leading runscorer in the 2022 IPL, racking up four centuries in 17 games for Rajasthan Royals.

England key players

Harry Brook

Yorkshire batter Harry Brook made his England debut in a T20 international against the West Indies in January 2022 and by the end of the year he had established himself in the Test team and won the T20 World Cup.

Brook averages 62 after 12 Test matches, scoring at a strike-rate of 92 runs per 100 balls, and he can be a middle-order matchwinner for England in T20 cricket.

The 25-year-old already has centuries in the IPL and the Pakistan Super League on his T20 CV and his innings of 20 helped England over the line in a tense run-chase in the 2022 T20 World Cup final.

Adil Rashid

England's ace leg-spinner Adil Rashid took 2-22 in the 2022 final and remains a world-class operator at the age of 36.

Only three players have bowled more deliveries in T20 internationals than Rashid, who has an excellent record in the Caribbean and claimed career-best figures of 4-2 against the West Indies at the 2021 T20 World Cup.  

Jofra Archer

England supporters will be desperate for Jofra Archer to be fit and firing at the World Cup after an injury-ravaged career for the paceman.

Archer starred at the 2019 World Cup, also lighting up that summer's Ashes series, after making his name with some stunning T20 performances for Hobart Hurricanes in Australia's Big Bash League.

The fast bowler was born in Bridgetown, Barbados – the venue for the T20 World Cup final – so he will be dreaming of a fairytale ending to the tournament in his hometown.

England one to watch

Phil Salt

There is fierce competition for places in England's white-ball batting unit, but T20 opener Phil Salt has earned his spot at the top of the order.

Salt grew up in Barbados, where he cracked 57 off 24 balls on his T20 debut against the West Indies in January 2022.

He walloped back-to-back T20 centuries against the Windies during December's T20 series and comes into the World Cup full of confidence after an excellent IPL campaign for Kolkata Knight Riders.

England's T20 World Cup prospects

England have a proud record in the T20 World Cup, winning two of the last six tournaments and losing a thrilling final against the West Indies in 2016.

They made a mess of their 50-over title defence in India last year but their squad is packed with batting talent and Buttler, Salt, Jonny Bairstow and Will Jacks have all played matchwinning innings in this season's IPL.

Ben Stokes, whose unbeaten half-century steered England home in the 2022 final against Pakistan, is unavailable after knee surgery although Brook and Liam Livingstone form a powerful middle-order.

Much will depend on the fitness of fast bowlers Archer and Mark Wood, along with veteran spinner Rashid, but England looked the best team in the tournament at the 2021 T20 World Cup, won the trophy in 2022 and should go well in 2024.
