London: The Kevin Pietersen fairytale continues. England took an unassailable 3-0 lead at The Oval, but for England's new and irrepressibly positive captain, he and his team have greater goals in their sights: a 5-0 whitewash.
Sunday's match represents another chance for South Africa the poor form of their senior players - Jacques Kallis and Mark Boucher in particular - has prompted their coach, Mickey Arthur, to look ahead to the future. He wants the younger generation like Indian team, to stake a claim for their own futures, but also sees Lord's as the beginning of a new era.
Pitch Report: Though summer has only briefly threatened to arrive, Lord's has quickened up as the season has progressed. Yet it offers plenty of assistance to the bowlers - even more so when considering the humid, stormy conditions that are forecast for north London.
