Allan Massie: England must get heads down against South Africa
South Africa poor at Lord’s, England very poor at Trent Bridge, and so the series is even as they resume at The Oval next week. Even it may be, but England must be the more worried. South Africa know what is their best 11, and, with Kagiso Rabada back from his absurd suspension, will be able to field it now. England, in contrast, don’t know their best team and on recent evidence have forgotten or, in some cases, never learned how to play Test cricket.
