Archer will be marking his return to international cricket for the first time in a year after recovering from his right elbow injury. Since 2021, he has faced several injury setbacks, ranging from stress fractures and recurring elbow issues to undergoing surgery following a mishap involving a fish tank.

The 29-year-old pacer's last appearance at the international level came over a year ago on England’s tour of Bangladesh in March 2023.

Left-arm spinning all-rounder Tom Hartley is the sole uncapped player and, along with batter Will Jacks, the only player not to feature at an ICC World tournament previously.
