Moeen Ali has been included in England's two 15 man squads for the five ODIS and two T20Is against South Africa beginning in February.

The Worcestershire all-rounder is named for the two series of limited overs cricket which will follow on from the four-match Test series beginning in Durban on Boxing Day.

It is two years ago in February that Moeen made his England senior breakthrough against the West Indies in the ODIs and T20Is in the Caribbean and he has remained a part of the squad in all formats of the game ever since.

All-rounder Ben Stokes and pace bowler Steven Finn return to both limited overs squads while all other players were involved in the most recent ODI or T20 series wins against Pakistan last month.

Those players in the ODI squad not currently involved in the Test series will arrive in South Africa on 23 January to begin their preparations for the series.

National lead batting coach Graham Thorpe will join England coaches Trevor Bayliss, Paul Farbrace and Ottis Gibson for the limited over series.

National selector, James Whitaker, said: “The limited overs cricket played by this group of players in the last six months has been very encouraging but we are all aware that there is still plenty of work to do.

"This ODI series against South Africa will be another important opportunity for these players to keep learning and developing their skills.

“With an ICC World T20 later this winter the T20 matches will be a crucial part of our preparations. On behalf of the selectors I would like to wish Eoin and Trevor all the very best.”
