England have named their Twenty20 and ODI squads for their upcoming tour of South Africa in November and December.

The three T20s and three ODIs scheduled will be played at Newlands and Boland Park in Paarl.

MORGAN TO LEAD ENGLAND, STOKES TO ONLY PLAY T20S

Due to Covid-19 crowd restrictions, players will be confined to bio-secure bubbles during the tour and all matches will be played in front of empty stadiums.

England are the reigning ODI World Cup champions and will provide a stern test for the Proteas who haven’t played any cricket since prior to lockdown in March.

Eoin Morgan will skipper England in both formats.

England stars Jofra Archer and Ben Stokes will depart the country after the T20 series.
