Online Cricket Betting and Match Prediction - South Africa v England 4th Test
The 4th and the last match of the four-match Test series on the England tour of South Africa will be played at The Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg.
The last time England registered an overseas Test series victory was against Sri Lanka in November 2018. After that, they have lost Test series while touring West Indies and New Zealand. A win here would release some pressure off skipper Joe Root and also set up the youngsters coming in the England ranks for a more settled future.
The stakes are much higher for South Africa. Faf du Plessis is playing his last Test match on home soil and the last as skipper as well, in all likelihood. He would like to end on a high.
This will also be the last Test match for Vernon Philander who announced his retirement before the series began. A loss in this match and hence a series defeat will also be a blot on the CVs of two of the most credible figures in world cricket - Graeme Smith and Mark Boucher.
As far as the team combination goes, South Africa will bring in Temba Bavuma in the place of either Zubayr Hamza or Rassie van der Dussen. Beuran Hendricks is likely to come into the XI in place of the banned Kagiso Rabada and Dwaine Pretorius is all set to replace Dane Paterson.
England will bring in in the recovered jofra Archer into the XI in place of either Mark Wood or Dom Bess.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
South Africa - Pieter Malan, Dean Elgar, Zubayr Hamza/Rassie van der Dussen, Faf du Plessis(c) Temba Bavuma, Quinton de Kock(wk), Vernon Philander, Keshav Maharaj, Dwaine Pretorius, Beuran Hendricks, Anrich Nortje
