    Don't think South Africa can pull this off, despite their outstandingly superior record at Lord's. Missing their premier batsmen AB and Dad, their premier bowlers Steyn and Abbott, I'm not very optimistic.

    Great toss to win for England. Match strategy will be to put up 400 and then maintain a lead on a deteriorating pitch throughout the game. South Africa have solid bowlers though, so could be interesting.

    Love the first Test match of the English summer.

    Weather looks good and a green tinge to the pitch.

    Gary Ballance returns to the side after impressive domestic form but has he rectified his technical issues ?

    Wow that Sky package gave me chills. Such a rich history and rivalry between these two teams.

    That 1998 series was one of my favourites growing up - those Trent Bridge and Headingley Tests were so intensely fought.

    Ballance bats at 5 at Yorkshire but asked to bat at 3 with England which is curious.

    Given his international struggles, you'd think he'd be cushioned lower down the order at 4 or 5 with Root at 3.

    England has not won a Test Series against South Africa since 1998 in England. There have been 2 other bogey teams for England at Home Test matches. Pakistan did not lose a Test Series against England in England from 1982 onwards till 2006. (82 series poms won 2-1) and Aussies from 1989-2001.

    Ballance and Jennings would NOT be the partnership I'd want at the crease so early in the innings on this green tinged pitch against Morkel-Philander-Rabada.

    Ballance is susceptible to fuller deliveries which have been responsible for 70% of his Test dismissals. He hangs back in his crease and his footwork is almost nonexistent.

    Not sure what was worse there - the decision to give out (village umpiring) or the decision not to review (infant school indecisive idiocy). Ballance owes us a century for that one.

    Philander has looked impressive.

    Problem for Elgar is he only has three seamers and so he will have to manage their workload carefully- it's likely England will be able to capitalise on the lack of a fifth bowling option (barring Duminy).

    Poor performance from England so far. South Africa have been solid but wholly unspectacular. At most England should be losing 1 wicket before lunch, after winning the toss in these conditions, but could be as many as 5 at this rate. Dreadful.

    He's not very sound technically and an England TTF; did you watch him bat this innings? always deep in his crease and minimal foot movement, he was dismissed in the same fashion for more then 90% of his previous stint, it's a weakness he has not rectified. I would have given someone else a chance but Ballance is well acquainted with Joe Root.

    Yep, Hameed has been struggling with deliveries moving away from his body and especially playing on the early season pitches which always have a bit in it for the bowlers. SA seamers are not easy to negotiate and it's a blessing in disguise that he has not been picked here given his lack of experience, now Hameed can work hard on his flaw to ensure he is not exposed at the international level when he inevitably stages a return to the England team

    LOL several people already calling the match, and one poster even calling the series! On the basis of 35 overs?! Crazy.

    It will be a long series. Looks like a good contest so far. Both teams look closely matched, and the conditions are lovely - genuinely sporting for both bowler and batsman.

    Still has the same problems.

    Again today he is playing an expert innings, but tends to throw it away on 80 or so.

    South Africa desperately missing Dale Steyn here. This Maharaj looks like a total waste.

    Pitch is looking flat and easier to bat on.

    Morne Morkel clean bowled Stokes, but it is a big no
    Ball. Perhaps that is the turning point of this test and series.

    Stokes gone. Moeen needs to stay with Root and get England to 300 at least.

    Stokes finally gone, a very soft dismissal, but the damage has been done already. England almost 200 up with 5 wickets in hand and Root looking good.

    Root, Test hundred on Debut as Captain. Before that Cook, Lamb and Strauss have done it. Proteas are completely rattled now, be ready for 3-0 or 4-0 series result.

    laughable he's playing instead of harmer, harmer actually gives the ball a rip, mahavag is pretty much the worst bowler i have ever seen

    This time, to a bit later, is when Steyn is so damn deadly. He use to dial it to 11 for the last bit/spell of the day and completely lift the energy levels of the team.

    Damn, I really miss him What a champ test bowler.

    really think the quota system, racist at best, is seriously misguided and flawed if an indian can start ahead of a white person, at the very least it should be about african participation, it shouldnt be explicitly anti-white. sad. poor harmer

    The quota system isn't getting Maharaj picked, it's consistently out performing Harmer in domestic cricket that is.

    This is an abysmal over-rate from South Africa. Scheduled finish in less than 1 hour - and we have only had 67 overs bowled. What a joke!!

    do me a favour, im watching right now and can see mahavag is absolute trash, harmer is a spinner of the ball and is rated extremely highly in england. he's very similar to swann

    South Africa and West indies have no chance of beating Poms this summer in test series, neither India has any chance next year, however Pakistan might beat them next year in 2 match Test series or worse case could be a draw.

    I feel to beat them all you have to do is to wear baggy greens

    Did you watch how Athers batted to save the test,what a player
