The series is well set up as England and South Africa will clash against each other in the deciding 3rd Test which is starting on Thursday. England trounced South Africa inside 3rd days in the 2nd Test by an innings and 85 runs to level the series 1-1. Fast bowlers provided a great flat form and timely centuries from Ben Stokes and Ben Foakes put them in a driver seat before Ollie Edward Robinson and James Anderson bamboozled the proteas batting line-up for the 2nd time in the match. Harry Brook is all set to make his Test debut, he has been rewarded for his consistent batting performances in the domestic circuit.

South Africa’s decision to bat first in the 2nd Test backfired them as they bowled out for just 151 runs in the 1st innings which allowed England to take the advantage. They didn’t bat well either in the 2nd innings barring Keegan Peterson and Rassie van der Dussen who added 87 runs for the 4th wicket. The decision to sit out Marco Jansen proved costly as well as Simon Harmer didn’t perform to the expectations. They are not ready to repeat the same mistakes in this Test and are hopeful of winning the series on England soil after 10 years.
