Fast bowler @MAWood33 looks set to play his first Test since February last year. @JofraArcher unlikely to be involved tomorrow as he is still recovering from an elbow injury.— Test Match Special (@bbctms) January 15, 2020
Wood expected to be preferred to @chriswoakes. #bbccricket #SAvENG pic.twitter.com/1fvIUqf6iK
England’s @josbuttler says it’s a “huge blow” to lose @jimmy9 from the tour.— Test Match Special (@bbctms) January 12, 2020
But likes of @JofraArcher & @MAWood33 could be “exciting” potential replacements.
Would you pick Woakes, Wood, Archer or Overton for the 3rd Test? #bbccricket #SAvENG pic.twitter.com/7NyHeW81ZD
Just one bowling spell each for @JofraArcher & @MAWood33 in the nets today as they try to prove their fitness for the 3rd Test.— Adam Mountford (@tmsproducer) January 13, 2020
Wood looked close to full fitness, Archer still not 100% after his elbow problem.
Wood or @chriswoakes to replace @jimmy9? #bbccricket #SAvENG pic.twitter.com/opoDR4CbHE
