Good morning… if you’re a water bird that is. Yes, it’s raining at the Wanderers, I’m afraid, and chilly, so we have a delayed toss and no sign of a start to this fourth and final Test in Johannesburg with England leading the series 2-1.

Word from George Dobell is that Jofra Archer will be back in the side after bowling thunderbolts in the nets this week, while Mark Wood is likely to sit out as he recovers from his exertions in the third Test – his first match since the World Cup final in July.

Chris Woakes could also come in for Dom Bess as England look for an all-out seam attack on a pitch known for bounce and carry. And hey, they’ve got Joe Root and Joe Denly to pick up any spin duties needed at this ground anyhow.

Stay tuned for South Africa team updates and word on the toss.
