Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer and Sam Curran have been rested from the one-day international portion of England’s upcoming white-ball tour of South Africa and will return home after the Twenty20 series has finished.

Left-arm seamer Reece Topley has been named in both 15-man squads for a tour which gets under way with the first of three T20s on 27 November and finishes with the last of three ODIs, on 9 December.

Warwickshire paceman Olly Stone, Lancashire batsman Liam Livingstone and Somerset all-rounder Lewis Gregory have been given a chance to push their cases in the absence of Stokes, Curran and Archer by being named in the ODI group. Stokes has only recently returned to action in the Indian Premier League after an extended period of leave to visit his seriously ill father Ged in New Zealand.

Ashley Giles, the director of men’s cricket, and Eoin Morgan, captain of both limited-overs sides, have stressed the need to prioritise the mental health of players as England seek to navigate their way through the coronavirus pandemic.

Archer said last week he was counting down the days until he was “free again”, having spent much of the last few months in biosecure environments, first with England then in the IPL in the United Arab Emirates. Curran, too, has had a heavy workload as he has juggled England duties with his IPL commitments so will be given a chance to recharge his batteries.

Seamers Jake Ball and Tom Helm are the other reserves for a tour that will take place behind closed doors, with England staying in a biosecure bubble in Cape Town and playing matches.
