England vs South Africa live stream: How to watch third Test match online and on TV

England take on South Africa in the deciding Test match of their three-game series this week.

Dean Elgar’s tourists comprehensively won the first Test at Lord’s, inflicting a first defeat on the new regime of England head coach Brendon McCullum and captain Ben Stokes.

But England responded with a dominant victory of their own at Old Trafford to square the series.

England have lost Jonny Bairstow through a freak golf injury, which opens a spot for Harry Brook to come into the batting line-up.
