England resting Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer, Sam Curran during South Africa tour

Reece Topley is in the 20 and 50-over squads too, the left-arm paceman having featured in the one-day series against Ireland on home soil earlier this year, his first global appearance in over four years.

All-rounders Ben Stokes and Sam Curran along with fast bowler Jofra Archer have been rested for England's upcoming One-day worldwide series against South Africa that starts on December 1.

Captain Eoin Morgan, who is also playing in the IPL with Kolkata Knight Riders, will lead England in three T20s and three ODIs to be held without spectators from November 27.

England's players and staff are to depart on November 16 and will play two intra-squad practice matches before the first T20 contest on November 27.

In the case of Stokes, who missed the second half of last summer's global programme for family reasons, England want him to be fully firing at the start of a packed year of Test cricket in 2021 that, covid permitting, will culminate in the Ashes.

Archer, Stokes and Curran have all been in a new bubble while taking part in the Indian Premier League tournament, which is being staged in the United Arab Emirates on health grounds.

That is a chief concern of national selector Smith, who pointed out the England and Wales Cricket Board's softened stance on the IPL has dovetailed with a resurgence in the national side's fortunes in white-ball cricket.

Reserves across both formats: Jake Ball (Nottinghamshire), Tom Banton (Somerset), Tom Helm (Middlesex).

Warwickshire paceman Olly Stone, Lancashire batsman Liam Livingstone and Somerset all-rounder Lewis Gregory have a chance to impress during the ODIs in the absence of Stokes, Archer and Curran.

'The ECB's position for a number of years now has been to permit players to play in the IPL, ' said Smith on Tuesday after naming a full strength squad for the Twenty20 games that have become a priority, with two short-form World Cups in the next two years.

Due to the presence of front-line spinners Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali, the young leg-spinner, Matt Parkinson has been dropped.

The England team has been announced for the three ODIs and three T20 matches against South Africa.

Eoin Morgan (captain), Moeen Ali, Jofra Archer, Jonathan Bairstow, Sam Billings, Jos Buttler, Sam Curran, Tom Curran, Chris Jordan, Dawid Malan, Adil Rashid, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, Reece Topley, Mark Wood.
