All Teams Full Wicket-keeper List for T20 World Cup 2024

43 names in focus as we look at the complete official wicket-keeper list for all teams for T20 World Cup 2024. 

If there is one category of player that has the least count in any team, it is the wicket-keepers. There are 20 teams participating in the tournament for the T20 World Cup 2024, and barring a couple of teams, almost every team has either one or two wicket-keepers in their squad. Overall, there are 43 wicket-keepers in T20 World Cup 2024 with South Africa having the most number of wicket-keepers. 

But why do teams invest so little in wicket-keepers? Well, unlike the batters and bowlers where at least 7 batters and a minimum of 5 bowlers are required, every team needs only one wicket-keeper. Hence, teams usually select one solid wicket-keeper, who can also bat, one good backup, and additional keepers who are good at batting. So, with official names in front of us, let’s look at the T20 World Cup 2024 official wicket-keepers list.
