England and South Africa meet at Trent Bridge on Thursday

Tom Westley and Dawid Malan have been named in the 13-man squad for the Third Investec Test against South Africa starting at the Kia Oval next Thursday.
 
Essex’s Westley is set to earn his first cap with selectors confirming he will bat at number three in the 100th Test at the Oval.
 
Middlesex batsman Malan is also included in the squad for the first time and could feature if England decide on selecting an extra batsmen when they confirm their starting line-up next week.

Malan, who made his England debut last month in the deciding T20 against South Africa, where he scored 78 off 44 balls in Cardiff, has been a consistent performer with Middlesex in red ball cricket. He averages 42.50 in the Specsavers County Championship this season with a highest score of 115.
 
England will report to the Kia Oval on Tuesday, where they will train in the afternoon.
