The third test match will see the clash of these two gainst in New Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg on Wednesday, January 24th, 2018 at 8:00 AM (GMT)
Things didn’t just work out for the men in blue in their elite white dress, they fell like a house of cards lacking something concrete to build upon and emerged as the weaker side.
