Day 4 Round Up

England has set South Africa the challenge of scoring 375 runs with six wickets remaining on the final day to win the third test, after the momentum stayed with the hosts on Sunday.

England declared shortly before tea on the fourth day at the Oval after scoring 313-8 and setting South Africa a victory target of 492. In reply, the tourists slumped to 52-4 before Dean Elgar (72) helped his side to 117 without further loss.

With the four-match series level at 1-1, South Africa must try to bat through three sessions to secure a draw or an unlikely victory.
