Investec 3rd Test: England v South Africa England take on South Africa in the final Test match of the English summer as these two formidable sides square off to perhaps decide the series and the number one ranking in Test match cricket. The final Test of the summer is always a show-piece occasion for the English game - over the past few years, the last game of the year has seen the Ashes regained (2009), a spot-fixing scandal that would engulf the sport (2010) and a comprehensive win over India that saw England crowned as the best team in the world (2011). The touring South Africans pose perhaps the biggest threat to England's new found status as the leaders of the world. In Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel, they possess arguably the most dangerous fast bowling pair in the world and the batting excellence of Graeme Smith, Jacques Kallis and AB de Villiers will ensure a stern challenge for England's all-conquering bowling attack. On their last visit to the UK, South Africa took the spoils 2-1 and ended both the captaincy of the Test career of Michael Vaughan. This final Test should be a thrilling contest between two evenly matched sides, even if fans might be left feeling a bit short changed by the staging of only three Tests in such a high profile series.

While Lord's Cricket Ground has long been seen as the "home of cricket" and the game's spiritual headquarters, its importance does not lie merely in its historic past.
