The 2024 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup – formerly, simply the World T20 – is the ninth edition of the tournament in only 17 years and the biggest ever with 20 teams taking part. It is taking place jointly in the Caribbean, for the second time, and the United States, which is hosting its first matches in either limited-overs World Cups.

England are defending champions and seeking a third title which would push them ahead of West Indies as the most successful side in T20 World Cup history.

Chris Jordan fired England into the semi-finals with an emotional hat-trick against the United States on his home island of Barbados.

His efforts opened the door for the reigning champions to take their fate into their own hands, with openers Jos Buttler and Phil Salt sealing the deal amid a flurry of sixes as they chased down 116 in just 9.4 overs.

Their thunderous 10-wicket win guaranteed the holders would make the final four, rendering them safe from the vagaries of net run-rate calculations and the outcome of the late match between South Africa and the West Indies.

How to watch the T20 World Cup on TV

Where is the tournament taking place?

The tournament is shared for the second time (after UAE and Oman stepped in to co-host it during the Covid-19 pandemic in 2021), this time by the Caribbean and the US after Cricket West Indies and USA Cricket were successful with a joint bid. The ICC has long identified the US as a prime growth area for the game and was delighted the two boards worked in partnership to secure the hosting rights.

Indeed Paraag Marathe, chair of USA Cricket and Leeds United, said in 2021 when they were named joint-hosts: “The ICC has identified the USA as a strategic market for growth that will benefit cricket around the world. A major event in 2024 will be the critical catalyst to improve facilities, develop a professional league, grow the fanbase and inspire public and corporate support … leaving a legacy of facilities and public enthusiasm for the sport across America ahead of the 2028 Olympic Games in Los Angeles.”

Which venues are hosting matches?

Six grounds in the Caribbean – Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in North Sound, Antigua & Barbuda, Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados, Providence Stadium in Providence, Guyana, Daren Sammy Cricket Ground in Gros Islet, Saint Lucia, Arnos Vale Stadium in Kingstown, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and Brian Lara Cricket Academy in San Fernando, Trinidad and Tobago – will share 39 matches in total.

The remaining 16 ties will take place at three venues across the United States: Nassau County International Cricket Stadium, a temporary venue built at Eisenhower Park, Long Island, New York, Central Broward Park in Lauderhill, Florida and Grand Prairie Stadium in Dallas, Texas.

Who is in the England squad?

Jofra Archer is part of England’s 15-man squad but there is no place for fellow seamer Chris Woakes. Chris Jordan also makes the cut, with his ability in the field and as a lower-order batsman said to be critical in selectors’ thinking. Harry Brook is also back after missing England’s tour of India.

Who did England warm up against?

England hosted Pakistan for four Twenty20 matches before flying to the Caribbean.

First T20 May 22, Headingley – match abandoned
Second T20 May 25, Edgbaston – England win by 23 runs
Third T20 May 28, Sophia Gardens – match abandoned
Fourth T20 May 30, The Oval - England win by seven wickets
