Kagiso Rabada and Joe Root
Earlier, South Africa was jolted by fast bowler Kagiso Rabada’s suspension. He is still bowling in this match but has been banned from the fourth and final Test at the Wanderers in Johannesburg later this month.
Rabada’s suspension came after Thursday’s overzealous celebration of England captain Joe Root’s dismissal. The Proteas have won 13 and lost 12 Tests at St George’s Park. They’ve also shared five draws.
The last Test at the Port Elizabeth venue was in February 2019, when Sri Lanka beat South Africa inside three days. This four-Test series is locked 1-1. The Proteas won the first Test at SuperSport Park in Centurion inside four days.
England triumphed late on the fifth day in the second Test at Newlands in Cape Town. The Wanderers in Johannesburg will host the fourth and final Test later this month.
