The draw for the last 32 of the 2024 Cazoo World Championship has been made with defending champion Luca Brecel being pitted against former semi-finalist David Gilbert.

The balls were pulled out on BBC Radio Five Live by Rick Edwards and Rachel Burden, who were joined by Rob Walker and world number three Mark Allen. The 16 seeds on the left were picked out at random against the 16 qualifiers.

As is tradition, Brecel begins his campaign at 10am on Saturday April 20th, the opening session of the tournament.

One of the top performers of the season so far Judd Trump will then take centre stage in the 2:30pm session on Saturday and faces a mouth watering showdown with world number 19 Hossein Vafaei.

Pre-tournament favourite and seven-time Crucible king Ronnie O’Sullivan has an intriguing clash with talented Welshman Jackson Page, while Chinese number one Ding Junhui clashes with Jack Lisowski in one of the ties of the first round.

The draw is as follows:

Luca Brecel v David Gilbert
