T20 World Cup 2024: Full Squad List for India, Australia, England

The Big 3 face-off against each other as we look at the full squad list comparison for India, Australia, and England for T20 World Cup 2024.

There is no doubt whatsoever that India, Australia, and England are the three most powerful teams in the world with their cricket boards being equally powerful. They are called the Big 3 for a reason, and their Lion’s share in ICC revenue is the biggest reason for it. While players from these teams are currently busy playing IPL 2024, after only a month, the focus will shift to these teams with T20 World Cup 2024 in place.

When the squad for the T20 World Cup 2024 was announced by these teams a few days back, England, Australia, and India looked the strongest on paper with superior capability in all departments. But if we had to do a head-on-head comparison, which team looks strongest on paper? Well, let’s take a look at the detailed comparison in all categories of India, Australia, and England squad and players list for T20 World Cup 2024. 

T20 World Cup Squad List Comparison for India, Australia and England

Batters – Winner India

India: Rohit Sharma (c), Suryakumar Yadav, Virat Kohli & Yashasvi Jaiswal

Australia: David Warner, Tim David & Travis Head

England: Ben Duckett & Harry Brook

Starting with the batters, India have selected the most number of batters in their squad. They currently have four batters with Australia having three, and England having only two. In terms of quality, the Indian contingent feels stronger with the likes of Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Suryakumar Yadav. Whereas for Australia, Head and Warner will play a key role, and Harry Brook for England will also play a key role. 

Wicket-keepers – Winner England

India: Rishabh Pant & Sanju Samson

Australia: Josh Inglis & Matthew Wade

England: Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler (c) & Phil Salt

When it comes to wicket-keepers, Team England beats India and Australia hands-down. England have three wicket-keeper batters in the form of Jos Buttler, Phil Salt, and Jonny Bairstow. Interestingly, all three are expected to be a part of England’s first-choice playing 11. For India, Pant and Samson are reliable keepers, and Australia aren’t too far behind either with the likes of Josh Inglis and Matthew Wade.  

All-rounders – Winner Australia

India: Axar Patel, Hardik Pandya (vc), Ravindra Jadeja & Shivam Dube

Australia: Ashton Agar, Cameron Green, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis & Mitchell Marsh (c)

England: Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran & Will Jacks

Talking about all-rounders, Australia take this round hands-down with quality all-rounders in their side. The team has five superb all-rounders in the side, and three these five all-rounders will be a part of their first-choice playing 11. For England, there are four names, but they don’t match the quality as that of Australia. Whereas for India, Hardik and Jadeja shall be the two key all-rounders, but given their current form, it feels a worry for the Indian team. 

Bowlers – Winner Australia and England

India: Arshdeep Singh, Jasprit Bumrah, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Siraj & Yuzvendra Chahal

Australia: Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Starc, Nathan Ellis & Pat Cummins

England: Adil Rashid, Chris Jordan, Jofra Archer, Mark Wood, Reece Topley & Tom Hartley

Finally, talking about the bowling, England and Australia take the cherry this time with both teams having quality bowlers in their side. Every team need at least 4 good bowlers in their side, and fortunately, both England and Australia have these bowlers. While England have Jofra Archer, Mark Wood, Adil Rashid, and Sam Curran as their top 4 bowlers, Australia have the quartet of Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Starc, and Adam Zampa.

But when it comes to India, it will all depend on two bowlers, Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav. Both are world-class bowlers, and probably better than any pacer or spinner out there. But the worry for India is the next 12 overs, where quality is missing big time. India will have to rely on Arshdeep Singh, Yuzvendra Chahal, and all-rounders, and unfortunately, they don’t match the quality of Australia or England.

So, that’s about the full squad list comparison for India, Australia, and England for T20 World Cup 2024. Overall, India have batting as their strength. Australia and England are stronger in the all-rounder and wicket-keeper department. The bowling sees a tie between England and Australia, and India are heavily reliant on two bowlers, Bumrah and Kuldeep.
