ENG vs RSA Betting Tips

  • With Jonny Bairstow ruled out through injury, Joe Root will be tasked with making the runs for England. The former skipper has been in excellent form over the last 18 months and is well worth backing as England’s highest run scorer in the Third Test. James Anderson took six wickets across the Second Test and the experienced swing bowler is our tip for England’s top wicket taker in this match.
  • Keegan Petersen top scored in both innings for South Africa in Manchester and he is our choice for their highest run scorer in this Final Test. With the ball, Anrich Nortje has been very consistent throughout the series and he is our pick for South Africa’s top wicket taker at the Kia Oval.
  • After making single figure scores in his three innings so far in this series, we expect Joe Root to come back into form in this Test. He is well worth backing to make over 90.5 runs in the game.

ENG vs SA 3rd Test Match Prediction & Betting Tips

With the series level at 1-1, the third and final Test between England and South Africa gets underway at the Kia Oval in South London on Thursday at 11:00. South Africa won the first Test convincingly by an innings and 12 runs at Lord’s before England bounced back with a win by an innings and 85 runs in Manchester. Read on as we preview this Test Match.

England’s bowlers set up the victory in the Second Test with exceptional bowling on the first day. Lower order batting took England to their strong position and they will be looking for another consistent performance in this Test.

South Africa were brought back down to earth after their impressive win at Lord’s. Although their confidence will have been slightly dented, they can take confidence from how England responded from a heavy defeat.

ENG vs SA Match Toss Prediction

South Africa won the toss and chose to bat first in Manchester but were bowled out for 151 in bowler friendly conditions. We predict similar conditions on Day 1 in London and expect both skippers to choose to field first.

The Kia Oval pitch is often used for the Final Test of the English summer and will offer spin after a hot and dry few months. Both teams will be aiming for a total of at least 400 in their first innings.

Warm and humid throughout the five scheduled days of this Test. Sunday currently looks like the only day to escape any rain interruptions.

England Team News & Playing 11

ENG Team News

After a freak injury whilst playing golf last week, England’s player of 2022, Jonny Bairstow, was ruled out of this Test Match and the T20 World Cup next month. Yorkshire middle-order batter, Harry Brook, is expected to come in to make his Test debut at the Kia Oval.

ENG Key Players

  • Joe Root - The right-handed number four batter has not made a good score yet in this series. However, he averages 50.14 in Test cricket with 28 centuries in this format.
  • Ben Stokes - England’s skipper took the Player of the Match Award in Manchester after hitting 103 and taking five wickets. He now has 12 hundreds in Test cricket.
  • James Anderson - The 40 year old right arm swing bowler continues to cause trouble for batters particularly in English conditions. He dismissed both South African openers across the Second Test.

ENG Team Form

England have won five of their last six games in this format. All this in spite of having clear problems at the top of their batting order.

South Africa Team News & Playing 11

SA Team News

There was one change for South Africa from the Test at Lord’s to the game in Manchester. Out went pace bowler Marco Jansen with spinner Simon Harmer coming in. We expect Harmer to keep his place at the Kia Oval where Rassie van der Dussen will miss out through injury. Ryan Rickleton will replace van der Dussen.

SA Key Players

  • Keegan Petersen - The top order batter faced 159 balls in the second innings in Manchester. His 42 runs included only one boundary but he put a great value on his wicket.
  • Anrich Nortje - The pace bowler has taken three wickets in each of the innings in this series. He dismissed Zak Crawley, Ollie Pope and Jonny Bairstow in the Second Test.
  • Kagiso Rabada - The fast bowler has taken nine wickets across the two games of the series and is always a threat to England’s batters throughout their order. He has 252 wickets from 54 Tests.

SA Team Form

South Africa’s Test winning run was ended after four straight wins. They were completely outplayed in the Second Test but we expect them to fight back in south London.

🏆 England vs South Africa Prediction

It is a shame that this is only a three-match series after the way the two teams have played so far. South Africa were on top throughout the opening game before England did exactly the same in the second fixture. We predict that this will be a closer Test than the first two and are backing England to win.
