WORCESTERSHIRE’S Pat Brown and Moeen Ali are in England’s two 16-strong squads for the tour to South Africa.

They will both be involved in the three-match ODI series starting on February 4 in Cape Town and then a trio of IT20 clashes from February 12 in East London.

Brown is in the ODI squad for the first time and Moeen returns to the T20 set-up after being rested for the successful series in New Zealand.

It will be the first time England have played in the 50-over format since their World Cup triumph in July. The squads have been selected with an eye on the T20 World Cup in Australia next year.

Brown said on Twitter: “Thrilled to be a part of both white-ball squads for the tour to South Africa, can’t wait for the next few months.”

Meanwhile, Worcestershire Rapids 2020 Vitality Blast signing Ashton Turner is gearing up for the start of the Big Bash League next week with Perth Scorchers.

Turner will have Chris Jordan (Sussex) and Liam Livingstone (Lancashire) among his team-mates for the seven-and-a-half week competition. The 26-year-old is available to play for Rapids throughout next summer’s Blast.

But before then he will be looking to help Scorchers get off to a winning start in the BBL.

They will visit Sydney Sixers on Wednesday and launch their home programme next Saturday against Melbourne Renegades.

Turner will be striving to repeat his BBL form of 2018-2019 when he was Scorchers’ leading scorer with 378 runs and three half-centuries.

Worcestershire Women’s Rapids leg-spinner Sarah Glenn was again among the wickets for England Women as they defeated Pakistan by 127 runs in the second ODI in Kuala Lumpur.

Glenn picked up the prized scalp of Pakistan captain and top scorer Bismah Maroof who made 64 off 65 balls before she was eighth out with the total on 187.

She had earlier dismissed number three player Javeira Khan lbw for 26.

Glenn, who also plays for Loughborough Lightning in the Kia Super League, finished with figures of 10-0-37-2 as Pakistan were dismissed for 200 in 44.5 overs.

It followed on from her performance of 2-38 in 9.4 overs on her England debut.

England are now 2-0 ahead in the series in which points accumulated count towards the ICC Women’s Championship.

England had earlier amassed 327-4 in their 50 overs.

Natalie Sciver hit an unbeaten 100 off 85 balls with 12 boundaries.

She shared in stands of 84 for the third wicket with Heather Knight (86) and an unbroken 146 in 14.1 overs with Fran Wilson (85 not out).
