England will attempt to complete the series comeback when they take on South Africa in the third Test at the Oval, which gets underway on Thursday, September 8.
The hosts levelled the three-match series at 1-1 when they beat the Proteas by an innings and 85 runs in the second Test at Old Trafford.
It was a reversal of the result from the first Test, which saw the tourists claim victory by an innings and 12 runs and was also over by the third day.

England's bowlers made short work of SA in both innings, limiting them to 151 runs in the first and 179 in the second, with James Anderson and Ollie Robinson taking the last five wickets for just seven runs in 30 deliveries.
Anderson finished the second Test with figures of six for 62 and was ably backed up by Robinson, who ended with five for 91 over the two innings.
England skipper Ben Stokes hailed another outstanding performance from Anderson, who surpassed Australian Glenn McGrath for international wickets taken with 951, of which 664 have come in Test cricket.

"You know what you are going to get: a man who runs in, gives the batter absolutely nothing and is absolutely relentless in everything he does," Stokes said.
"I said before this game started that I honestly can't see when he's going to stop. You can see him just enjoying every moment he's out there. He is 40 but he doesn't act like a 40-year-old.
"He's been amazing around the dressing-room. The energy that he runs in with and bowls is just incredible. And he's a testament to himself and a great ambassador for the game, especially for fast bowlers."
