Nine of the fourteen selected were in Malaysia representing Argentina at the previous ICC Trophy in 1997.
For Kirschbaum, Pereyra and Forrester, this will be their fourth ICC Trophy, having debuted at the 1990 tournament in Holland.
Amongst the reserves is Agustin Casime, at 16 years of age, the youngest player amongst the eighteen players named.
The side will travel under manager Ricardo Lord, coach Grant Dugmore, from South Africa, and American trainer Tom Burton.
Argentina's representative umpire will be David Gibson, who officiated in the 2000 Americas Championship.
