ENG vs SA: Dean Elgar feels the 3rd Test is like a World Cup Final

South Africa skipper Dean Elgar thinks the third and final Test fixture against England at Kennington Oval will be equivalent to a World Cup Final.
The first game of the series saw South Africa winning by an innings & 12 runs. Then, the hosts produced a fightback to level the series 1-1 by securing victory by an innings & 85 runs.
Furthermore, the Proteas are currently in the second position in the World Test Championship (WTC) points table. If they manage to prevail over England, they will be topping the points table and enhancing their claim for the WTC Final next year.
Elgar reckoned that the third game is the biggest Test match of his captaincy stint, and wants the players to be hungry to get a win and end the tour with a series victory.
