Ashes hopefuls to make Test debuts


Toby Roland-Jones will make his Test debut against South Africa.

MIDDLESEX paceman Toby Roland-Jones will make his England Test debut against South Africa on Thursday after Mark Wood was ruled out with injury.

Durham fast bowler Wood missed Wednesday’s final training session for the third Test with an ongoing heel problem that had troubled him in England’s 340-run defeat by South Africa in the second Test, a result that saw the Proteas level the four-match series at 1-1.

“Wood is not 100 per cent fit so he’s going to miss out this week and Toby Roland-Jones comes in for a debut,” England captain Joe Root told a press conference on Wednesday ahead of the clash at The Oval.
