The third and final Test of the series will take place from September 8.

Prior to this match, both teams competed in a thrilling white-ball portion of South Africa’s tour of England. That included three ODIs and also three T20Is.

ODIs between the two teams ended in a 1-1 draw prior to this. Due to rain, the final game in the series was called off before it could end.
