Peterborough-born Brown (21) has been selected for the England squad to contest three 50-over and three 20-over matches in South Africa in January and February.

Brown won his first T20 caps in a series win over New Zealand earlier this year, but has yet to play a one-day international for his country.

If the right-arm seamer impresses in South Africa and in the summer he will have a great chance of representing England in the T20 World Cup in Australia next November.
