Despite their efforts in the first Test, South Africa made a couple of tactical errors in the second Test at Manchester and paid the price. With the series tied at 1-1, both teams will be rejuvenated as they enter the decider. Similar to the white-ball leg, where England controlled one game and South Africa dominated the other
On all days, the weather will be generally cloudy with a risk of rain. The Oval pitch is flat and more favourable to batters. The boundaries are shorter, and the pitch provides no additional bounce. Batters’ jobs are made easier by the speedier outfield. Teams successfully protected the target 38 times in 103 Tests. The squad chasing the target has won 28 times. Teams have won the last four Tests after batting first. As a result, the team that wins the toss should bat first.
England’s success in the second Test was inspired by captain Ben Stokes. His next task will be to win the last Test and maintain his unblemished record against South Africa over the last decade. England’s opening slot remains an issue. Though Zak Crawley demonstrated strong desire with his 38 runs off 101 balls, he and Alex Lees have not been consistent for England. England’s pace assault was on point in the second Test. Anderson set a record with 100 Test wickets against South Africa in the second Test.
South Africa had a fantastic opportunity to keep England on their toes following their remarkable triumph at Lord’s. For this match, South Africa is likely to make a few changes to their starting lineup. Rassie van der Dussen broke his finger in Manchester, and Ryan Rickelton is likely to replace him. Aiden Markram hasn’t looked the part in recent games, and RVD’s injury may have given him another chance. However, South Africa can still replace Markram with Khaya Zondo.
