South Africa V England Third Test Preview 14-01-2016

With two matches played and England leading the series 1-0, South Africa will be hoping to level the series in the third game and will be buoyed by events on the last day of the second test when an unlikely victory was briefly on the cards.

England won the first test handsomely by 241 runs and must have been scenting another victory in the second after Ben Stokes bashed his way to a double century in quick time giving them a first innings total of over 600 runs.

South Africa though were methodical in their reply and Hashim Amla posted a double ton of his own in riposte moving to 201 runs in 477 deliveries and effectively killing the match as a contest. With both sides posting over 600 runs apiece surely there was no way anyone could win this game?

The South Africans bowled well though and put England under some pressure however a combination of the lack of time left in the game and some dour weather ended any hopes of a result.

The big news for this game is that once again Dale Steyn misses out as he has not recovered from a shoulder injury that he picked up in Durban and he needs further scans to ascertain the damage.

After Hashim Amla's resignation as captain the side will be captained by AB de Villiers and he is sure to inject some much needed spirit into the South Africans fielding and keep them on their toes.

This pitch favours pace and with Broad and Finn hitting his straps England have a great chance of making it 2-0 whilst Steyn is still sidelined.

These are two evenly matched sides though and the result can simply hinge on who wins the toss so I'm not going to be betting on the result prior to that.
