England have already announced their squad for the T20 World Cup 2021 – here’s the complete T20 WC squad, including the full team list along with injury updates and list of reserve players.

In all, England have a win percentage of 48.38 in 32 matches in the T20 World Cup, and already have a T20 title to their name. Over the years, England have improved as a limited-overs side, winning the 2019 ODI World Cup. They also made it to the final of the World T20 2016.

The England team is led by Eoin Morgan, while Jos Buttler is his deputy.

They begin their campaign on October 23 against the West Indies. They will also face South Africa, Australia, and two teams from the qualifying round in their group.
