Ben Stokes, Joffra Archer and Sam Curren have not been selected in England's one-day cricket team for next month's tour of South Africa. They will play a three-match T20 series from 27 November to 1 December. He has been rested from the ODI series scheduled from December 4 to 9.



Stokes has recently returned to the field through the Indian Premier League. He was in New Zealand with his ailing father. England and Wales Cricket Board men's cricket director Ashley Giles and limited overs captain Eoin Morgan have said that players' mental health will also have to be given priority.

Archer said last week that he was counting the days when he would be out of the 'bio bubble'. They are living in a biologically safe environment, first for England and then during the IPL.

England T20 team: Eoin Morgan (captain), Moeen Ali, Joffra Archer, Johnny Bairstow, Sam Billings, Jose Butler, Sam Curren, Tom Curren, Chris Jordan, David Malan, Adil Rashid, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, Reese Topley, Mark Wood.
