LONDON, Aug 31: England on Wednesday named an unchanged men's squad for the third Test against South Africa, which begins on September 8 at the Kia Oval.
The series is level at 1-1 going into the deciding Test after England won the second game at Old Trafford by an innings and 85 runs. This was after Proteas triumphed by an innings and 12 runs in the first Test at Lord's.
Following the win in the second Test, the England selection panel, made up of captain Ben Stokes, head coach Brendon McCullum and managing director Rob Key, have decided to keep faith with their 14-man group.
Only change would have come in the event of a defeat. Even then, McCullum is of a mind to allow players as many opportunities as possible to come good, especially with this group of players, whom he and Stokes believe are the best available in the country right now for their respective roles. IANS
