Reece Topley and Jamie Overton will join England's pace programme this winter as they both continue their recovery from back injuries.
Topley, who has suffered a series of injury setbacks since he won the last of his 16 England limited-overs caps 19 months ago, will join Overton and five other pace prospects in South Africa, Spain and Loughborough.
Overton, whose twin brother Craig was one of three uncapped players named in England's Ashes squad last month, was reportedly close to a return for Somerset towards the end of the summer.
England's lead fast-bowling coach Kevin Shine will take charge of the bowling programme alongside Worcestershire assistant and fast bowling coach Matt Mason.
Worcestershire pair Josh Tongue and George Scrimshaw, as well as Tom Barber (Middlesex), Paul Walter (Essex) and Zak Chappell (Leicestershire) have also been named among the group this winter.
After splitting their time between their counties and the Performance Centre through October and November, the Pace Programme will head for Spain from December 9-14, and again from February 27 - March 3, after their return from South Africa.
