South Africa skipper Faf du Plessis has warned new England No.3 Tom Westley that his warm-up ton will count for nothing in the white-hot Test match arena. Westley racked up 106 not out for the Lions earlier this month against a South Africa attack containing all the bowlers he will face at the Oval bar Vernon Philander. But du Plessis, who missed that match, showed little concern for the batsman who has averaged 57 from No.3 for Essex over the past two summers.
England will turn to several new faces at the Oval after Joe Root warned his team that they need to toughen up. And skipper Root could be forgiven if he starts the game with a repetitive strain injury. Because he will be handing out up to three new caps in the search for a backbone that was seriously lacking in the hammering in the second Test in Nottingham. Middlesex bowler Toby Roland-Jones will join Tom Westley in making a Test debut in The Oval’s 100th Test match.
Toby Roland-Jones is set to finally make his England Test debut at the Oval on Thursday. Mirror sport understands that Mark Wood is struggling to be fit for the 3rd Investec Test which would clear the way for the Middlesex man to make his five-day bow. Roland-Jones has been a regular squad member this summer after bowling Middlesex to the County Championship last year but has only played one day cricket so far.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
