England National Cricket Selectors have named a 16-strong squad for the three-match ODI series in South Africa, starting February 4 in Cape Town, and a 16-strong squad for the three-match T20I series against the Proteas, starting February 12 in East London. This will be the first time that England have played in the 50-over format since their memorable ICC Men’s World Cup triumph in July. Eight players remain from the World Cup squad.

Worcestershire seamer Pat Brown, Somerset batsman Tom Banton and the Lancashire duo of Matthew Parkinson and Saqib Mahmood are included in the ODI squad for the first time.

Jofra Archer, Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes, and Mark Wood are rested for the ODIs, but return for the T20Is. England have named a strong squad for the three-match series, which sees the return of Moeen Ali, Jofra Archer, Jos Buttler, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes and Mark Wood. Five players, who played in England’s 3-2 victory over New Zealand in November, miss out on selection – Tom Banton, Sam Billings, Lewis Gregory, Saqib Mahmood and James Vince.

Commenting on the selection of the squad, National Selector Ed Smith, said, "These two squads were selected with an eye on the T20 World Cup in Australia in 2020.

“In the T20s, a number of players who were rested for the successful 3-2 victory in New Zealand return to the squad: Jos Buttler, Jofra Archer, Ben Stokes, Moeen Ali and Jason Roy.

“We want to expand the pool of players who can perform successfully for England, while also helping the team to peak for major tournaments."

England ODI squad:  Eoin Morgan (c), Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Tom Banton (wk), Pat Brown, Sam Curran, Tom Curran, Joe Denly, Chris Jordan, Saqib Mahmood, Dawid Malan, Matthew Parkinson, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, Chris Woakes

England T20I squad: Eoin Morgan (c), Moeen Ali, Jofra Archer, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler (wk), Pat Brown, Sam Curran, Tom Curran, Joe Denly, Chris Jordan, Dawid Malan, Matt Parkinson, Adil Rashid, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, Mark Wood
