Ben Stokes calls for England to ‘right wrongs’ of Trent Bridge in third Test

• South Africa thumped hosts by 340 runs in Nottingham this month
• ‘We will prove how good of a side we are,’ says Durham all-rounder

Ben Stokes has called for England to “right the wrongs” of Trent Bridge when they face South Africa in the third Test at The Oval.

The hosts were thumped by 340 runs in Nottingham earlier this month as the tourists levelled the four-match series in convincing fashion. England have now had time to reflect on the disappointing display, and Durham all-rounder Stokes insists it was not due to a lack of desire.

England faced with no easy answers after painful defeat by South Africa

Tom Westley makes his Test debut but the rest of Joe Root’s chastened side is marked by uncertainty as they attempt to bounce back at The Oval

So which side are going to be thrashed at The Oval? The series between England and South Africa has not been short of incident or interest but, while it stands tantalisingly at 1-1, a tense, fingernail chewing finish to a Test has been the missing ingredient. Add a couple of those and we have a series to remember for a long time. Modern cricketers do not seem so adept at digging themselves out of holes.

Tom Westley and Dawid Malan named in England squad for third Test

• Westley to make Test debut at No3 in place of Gary Ballance
• Surrey opener Mark Stoneman overlooked for Oval Test

Tom Westley has already tasted success against South Africa this summer and now the Essex right-hander believes this familiarity with their bowlers could help ease the jump to Test cricket when he makes his England debut next Thursday.

Westley, who scored an unbeaten 106 against the tourists for England Lions last month, has been handed the No3 spot in Joe Root’s side following the fractured index finger that ruled Gary Ballance out of the third Test at the Kia Oval. He is part of a 13-man squad who include the similarly uncapped Dawid Malan of Middlesex and sees the bowling options unchanged.
