Pair of brothers who have played together in T20 World Cup

There are five brothers who have featured in T20 World Cup from Irfan-Yusuf to Hussey Brothers, let's look at complete list.

The T20 World Cup 2024 is turning out to be an entertaining tournament where we have witnessed high-scoring, low-scoring, and close encounters in just two days. This time we do not have brothers playing in a team, but in past editions, there were pairs of brothers who have graced the tournament. When even one member of your family represents your nation abroad, you should be quite proud. When two siblings get to play together for their nation, the happiness is unbounded.

There have been many father-son and brother-brother teams that have represented their countries in cricket. The T20 World Cup has featured five of these brother duos together.
