South Africa and England face off on the opening day of the fourth and final Test at the SuperSport Park in Centurion on Friday. England have already clinched the series with an unassailable 2-0 lead, thanks to their crushing seven-wicket win in the third Test at the Wanderers in Johannesburg. England captain Alastair Cook, who himself is in search of regaining his old form, has urged his side to complete a 3-0 series victory by winning the upcoming game as well. South Africa, on the other hand, will play for pride in the upcoming match, and skipper AB de Villiers will look to get the Proteas their first Test victory in over 12 months.

Among the key changes expected for the fourth Test will be the replacement of Dane Vilas and Stiaan van Zyl by Quinton de Kock and Stephen Cook, with the latter set to make his debut, for South Africa. In the England camp, Steven Finn has been ruled out with a side strain, which makes Chris Woakes’ selection likely.
