Steven Finn has replaced injured fast bowling colleague Mark Wood in the only change to England's squad for the fourth and final Test against South Africa, starting on Friday at Old Trafford.

Toby Roland-Jones made his debut in the third Test victory and was part of England's pace attack alongside James Anderson and Stuart Broad, while Finn, whose last Test appearance was in October last year, is added as standby for Wood. 

Finn's Middlesex team mate Roland-Jones took eight wickets, while fellow debutant Tom Westley, batting at number three, also shone with a 59 in the second innings as the hosts won by 239 runs on Monday to take a 2-1 series lead.
