England wins toss and bats in final test vs. South Africa

Despite winning in style to take a 2-1 series lead at The Oval earlier this week, England have for too long had the life sucked out of them when they are seemingly on the rise. The 2003 series following that ended in a 2-2 draw while the Proteas emerged victorious in the 2008 and 2012 series in the country with convincing performances.

South Africa also listed Temba Bavuma in the No 4 spot, an elevation from No 6, with Quinton de Kock dropping back to No 6 after operating at No 4 in the last two Tests.

"All I'm trying to do is produce the moments for the team that can swing it our way and mean we are going to win", Ben Stokes said.

Joe Root remained unbeaten 34 as the England skipper guided the hosts with a steady hand to 147 for 4 at tea.

England, who had won the toss, were 67 for one at lunch at a blustery Old Trafford with captain Alastair Cook on 31 and partner Tom Westley on 19. Not to forget Moeen's hat-trick that wrapped the game for England in the final innings.

Weeks of incessant rain in Manchester have left the outfield saturated and the pitch an unknown quantity.

But victory at Old Trafford would at least ensure South Africa maintain a proud away Test record.

Both teams are likely to retain the combination from The Oval game.

Root was doing a lot of nailing down in his captain's media conference. Ben Stokes, 6. Dawid Malan, 7.


"Westley played very positively and Toby Roland-Jones bowled superbly".

"There are a number of players already inked in, the likes of Root, Stokes, Cook, Anderson, Broad and Bairstow but there are others places up for grabs".

After lunch, South Africa bowled with extra objective and, at one stage, bowled five consecutive maidens.

There has been a lot of talk surrounding Chris Morris being an "X-factor", a tag he will want to prove wrong soon given his quality in the limited overs formats. Vernon Philander, 9. Keshav Maharaj, 10.

Before play, a presentation was made to James Anderson after the Pavilion End at Old Trafford, his Lancashire home ground, was officially renamed the James Anderson End in honour of England´s all-time leading Test wicket-taker.

England were unchanged from the side that triumphed at The Oval, a result that left Root on the brink of a win in his first series as England captain at 2-1 up with one to play.

Stokes- England's match victor needs to be in every fantasy team.

Malan's third Test innings brought a third failure, as he was tempted to drive at Morne Morkel outside off stump and was caught at second slip for 18.

Jennings was the first man to go for 17 - another failure in the second innings will surely see him dropped for the first Test against the West Indies - but should have been dismissed on four when Rabada dropped a caught and bowled chance.
