A ball was not bowled on the first day of the final Test between South Africa and England due to rain. The game has been suspended for the second day following the death of Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom.

It was thought that due to today’s break, there will be no change in the length of the match, the Oval Test will be played by one day. But it is not happening. One day was lost from the Test due to the rush to return to South Africa.

In other words, due to the rain and the death of the queen, the length of the Oval Test has now come down to three days. The third day of the match will start from Saturday. Which will actually start from the first ball of the match. Because not a single ball was played in two days.

Although the first day of the match was not played on Thursday, the toss was held. Where England won the toss and took the fielding. Both teams won once in the first two Tests of the three-match series. So this match is the undeclared final.

England XI: Alex Lees, Jack Crawley, Ollie Pope, Joe Root, Harry Brook, Ben Stokes (captain), Ben Foakes (wicketkeeper), Ollie Robinson, Stuart Broad, Jack Leach and James Anderson.

South Africa XI: Dean Elgar (captain), Sarel Erwi, Keegan Pietersen, Ryan Rickleton, Khaya Zondo, Kyle Verraine (wicketkeeper), Wian Mulder, Marco Janssen, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada and Enrich Norkia.
