Match predictions ENG VS RSA

England is on a roll after the arrival of Brendon McCullum as their head coach. They have managed to adopt an aggressive approach which has worked wonders for them. Stokes’s army will look to continue the same and seal the series at the Oval test. Jonny Bairstow is all set to miss out.

He sustained an injury playing golf last week and was eventually ruled out. Harry Brook will be the most likely replacement. On the other hand, Rassie van der Dussen will be missing from South Africa’s side. He suffered an injury in the second game at Manchester. Dean Elgar and Co. will look to bounce back, leaving everything in the past. Both the teams look strong, the odds are in favor of England for the win considering their form and squad strength.
