Moeen Ali will return to the UK at the end of England's five-match ODI series against the West Indies, and will be replaced by Surrey's Sam Curran.

The Worcestershire allrounder had been set to feature in the third series of the tour, having also featured in the other two, but the decision has been made to rest him.

Moeen is set to feature for the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL, which kicks off on March 23.

Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler are also set to feature in the tournament for the Rajasthan Royals, and were left out of the original squad to give them a chance to rest.
