Papua New Guinea (PNG) announced a 15-member squad for the upcoming ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024, scheduled to be co-hosted in the West Indies and the United States of America (USA).

This will be their second appearance in the T20 World Cup, having debuted in the 2021 edition held in Oman and the United Arab Emirates.

36-year-old Assadollah Vala, who led the team in the 2021 edition, will continue as captain, while all-rounder Charles Amini will serve as his deputy in the Carribean.

PNG squad features as many as ten players from the previous campaign, as well as 23-year-old Jack Gardner, who was a reserve player in the 2021 edition.

“The energy has been great within the team. For some of the boys who went to the last T20 World Cup, it’s a different feeling now with a lot of the training because the last time was during Covid, and the preparation wasn’t as good as what we’re going through now,” said captain Assadollah Vala.

“I am looking forward to this event because I know we are going to do well.”

PNG are placed in Group C alongside co-hosts West Indies, New Zealand, Afghanistan, and Uganda. They will play their opening game in the T20 World Cup against West Indies on June 2.
