Tom Westley was dismissed for 25 runs on his Test debut for England at The Kia Oval this afternoon.

The Mildenhall and Essex batsman was called-up to the squad for the third Test against South Africa on the back of his performances in the County Championship this season.

And, despite batting at number three, the 28-year-old was thrown into the Test arena early on as opener Keaton Jennings fell to the bowling of Vernon Philander for a duck.

Alongside his Essex team-mate Alastair Cook, Westley went on to hit five fours before he edged a Chris Morris delivery through to South Africa captain Faf du Plessis in the slips.

That left England on 64/2 and at 4pm they had moved on to 140-4, with Cook (67) still at the crease.
