"Could players be flying home midway through the Ashes? We have to be proactive in looking after them, so it's certainly something that we may have to look at, yes," Silverwood said.

Curran called the Ashes series "the pinnacle" of a player's career but said it's a "very long time away" to think about what might happen then.


England will also play three one-day internationals after the T20 matches in India. Curran and some other England players will have an extended stay, with the Indian Premier League scheduled to start on April 9.

Curran, who plays for the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings, said playing in the IPL would be "great" in a year of the T20 World Cup in India. But Curran remains hopeful to be available for the start of England's Test summer as they host New Zealand for a two-match series in June.

The IPL final is scheduled for May 30, while the first New Zealand Test starts on June 2 at Lord's. "Any time there's England games in the summer you do want to play in them," said Curran. "You'll have to see how the IPL pans out. I guess if you miss the qualification then most likely you'll be available for those Tests. If you're in the final it might be a bit different."
