Cape Town - The Proteas will be without the services of Dale Steyn for the upcoming ODI series against England. 

Steyn left the field in the first Test in Durban with a shoulder injury and he has not featured since.

According to Cricinfo he will play no part in any of the five 50-over matches that get underway on Wednesday, February 3. 

The site also suggested that a call on Steyn's availability for the two T20s would be made at "a later stage".

Vernon Philander is also set to miss the ODI series as he continues his recovery from an ankle injury, while the extent of Kyle Abbott's latest hamstring strain is also not known in full but is enough to rule him out of the first ODI.

With Kagiso Rabada and Morne Morkel sure to be rested for at least a few of the matches during the series, the South Africa selections will in all likelihood add to the squad in the coming days.

Proteas ODI squad

AB de Villiers (Titans, captain), Kyle Abbott (Dolphins), Hashim Amla (Cape Cobras), Farhaan Behardien (Titans), Quinton de Kock (Titans), JP Duminy (Cape Cobras), Faf du Plessis (Titans), Imran Tahir (Dolphins), David Miller (Dolphins), Morne Morkel (Titans), Chris Morris (Titans), Kagiso Rabada (Highveld Lions), Rilee Rossouw (Knights)
