England won the toss and Joe Root decided to bat first. So far all the three Test matches in the series have been won by the team batting first. England have a great chance of winning a first home series against South Africa since 1998.

South Africa on the other hand would like to continue their glorious form away from home by winning the last Test at Manchester and drawing the series 2-2.

Playing XIs:

England: Alastair Cook, Keaton Jennings, Tom Westley, Joe Root(c), Dawid Malan, Ben Stokes, Jonny Bairstow(w), Moeen Ali, Toby Roland-Jones, Stuart Broad, James Anderson

South Africa: Heino Kuhn, Dean Elgar, Hashim Amla, Temba Bavuma, Faf du Plessis(c), Quinton de Kock(w), Theunis de Bruyn, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Morne Morkel, Duanne Olivier
