ICC T20 World Cup 2024: SWOT Analysis Of Team Pakistan

A new ICC tournament has finally arrived, marking the passing of another year! The T20 World Cup 2024 is about to kick off, and the alarm is going off. From June 1 to June 29, 2024, teams from all over the world will compete against one another in the West Indies and the United States, which are co-hosting the tournament.

After a protracted absence of ICC trophies, Team Pakistan is extremely motivated. There’s a great opportunity to create history in the US and the Caribbean during the upcoming T20 World Cup.

The supporters of Pakistani cricket are still waiting for another ICC trophy. As 2024 draws near, all eyes will be on the Men in Green for the T20 World Cup. Let’s conduct a SWOT analysis to look more closely at the team’s makeup to determine what lies ahead.

The Green Army’s bowling attack is their greatest asset, particularly their new ball bowling. The fact that Mohammad Amir, Naseem Shah, and Shaheen Afridi are present warns the others to exercise caution and keeps them vigilant. Their unmatched skill and quickness could be fatal for the adversary, leaving them perplexed.

Naseem Shah has never looked better, even if he missed the ODI World Cup 2023 due to surgery. Nevertheless, he did make a remarkable recovery in the PSL. With players like former T20 captain Afridi and retirement returnee Amir, the trio has the potential to win the entire competition.

Pakistan’s left-arm bowler, Shaheen Afridi, has the potential to win the game. Shaheen is having success with the ball right now. Shaheen has taken 273 T20 scalps at an average of 20.44, as per ESPNcricinfo. His 7.91 economy rate is respectable. The youthful bowler has taken 88 wickets for Pakistan at a mere 20.42. These are significant figures.

According to multiple speculations that have surfaced in recent days, Rizwan may team up with Saim Ayub or Fakhar Zaman to form a left-hand-right-hand combination, while Pakistan’s captain Babar Azam will drop to the No. 3 position.

Though there hasn’t been any official confirmation of this, these might just be rumours, as the “Babar-Rizwan” duo has a history of helping Pakistan out when it matters most.

They must establish the proper alignment and balance. Ayub and Rizwan will probably start, with Babar acting as the pivot at number three. For fireworks, Pakistan is mostly dependent on Babar and Rizwan. Ayub is still the weak link at the front. In T20 appearances for Pakistan, he has not yet scored 50 or 100 runs.


Muhammad Amir

Muhammad Amir presents perhaps Pakistan’s greatest opportunity. His selection on the Pakistan cricket team for the next T20 World Cup adds a surprising factor. He was formerly considered the country’s Wasim Akram.

Considering how quickly T20 cricket matches move, it will take time to foresee and plan against someone absent from the international arena for so long.

No matter how powerful Pakistan is, they are still their own worst enemies. They are down after losing a match against Ireland, a crafty newcomer, and then they are up, raising the sun and celebrating their victory against a dominant force in cricket.

Pakistan, the runners-up of the previous edition, arrived with the aspirations of millions of supporters, both domestically and globally, who last witnessed the Men in Green raise an ICC trophy in 2017. They anticipate that this competitive competition will present many speed bumps along the way, but they intend to keep moving forward and not turn around.


Babar Azam (captain), Abrar Ahmed, Azam Khan, Fakhar Zaman, Haris Rauf, Iftikhar Ahmed, Imad Wasim, Mohammad Abbas Afridi, Mohammad Amir, Mohammad Rizwan, Naseem Shah, Saim Ayub, Shadab Khan, Shaheen Shah Afridi, and Usman Khan
