DOM Bess has been left out of England's XI for the final Test against South Africa.

The Somerset off-spinner claimed a maiden Test match five-wicket haul in the innings victory in Port Elizabeth last week, which put England 2-1 up with just this match to play.

Despite Bess' impressive performances in the series to date, the 22-year-old has been overlooked for the finale at the Wanderers in Johannesburg with the tourists opting for an all-seam attack.

Chris Woakes has replaced Bess in the team, with Jofra Archer picking up an injury in the warm-up which ruled him out of the game.

England captain Joe Root said: "The sun could break through. There's a bit of rain forecast later. The wicket has some cracks, but we're trying to learn from Centurion.

"I'm sure it will be tough this morning, but we have to battle through.

"We have five seamers. It was a very difficult decision. We couldn't guarantee Jofra would get through the whole game. It's very disappointing for him.

"We have played some really good cricket. We have to keep looking to learn and get better."

The start of the match was delayed by rain but 54.2 overs were possible on the first day, which ended with England on 192-4.
