THE injury to Proteas medium pacer Friedel de Wet looks set to open the door for Wayne Parnell to make his Test debut when the fourth and final match of the series against England gets under way at the Wanderers, Johannesburg, tomorrow.
De Wet picked up a back injury in the drawn Test in Cape Town last week and the prognosis for the tall seamer doesn't look good.
He fought through the pain barrier at Newlands but medical reports suggest he will be out of the game for some time and an operation might be necessary.
For Parnell it looks like the beginning of a new stage in his international career.
Having already played a number of one-day internationals and T20 games, the selectors look set to elevate him to being a regular Test player.
Hailing from Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape, Parnell made an impression when playing against the Australians in the 2008-09 season.
He followed this up by winning the Gold Ball Award at the ICC Champions Trophy last year in South Africa, where the left-arm paceman picked up 11 wickets.
The Wanderers track should be to his liking and after all the rain that has fallen in the Gauteng region these past few weeks, a tinge of green can be expected on the wicket.
But it's not just with the ball that Parnell is gaining a reputation. Bat in hand he has been known to stick around at the wicket, and as the Proteas have learnt these past few weeks, every run counts.
England look certain to go into the match with the same team that survived for a draw in Cape Town.
For Kevin Pietersen it will be his last chance on a long tour to stamp his pedigree on his former homeland.
Coming into the tour after an Achilles tendon operation, Pietersen has been a shadow of the player he was when taking on Australia in the Ashes.
England captain Andrew Strauss knows the Durban-born Pietersen owes him a big score ... he'll be hoping the "Bull Ring" will be the place he delivers.
