After a fairly long gap since the completion of the T20I and ODI series, England are all set to host South Africa in a three-match Test series starting August 17. The first Test will be played at the Lord’s Cricket Ground and all eyes will be on the hosts, who have not lost a single Test match since Brendon McCullum and Ben Stokes took the head coach and captain’s positions respectively.

The English Test team, which was witnessing a downfall, has emerged as a force to reckon with. The attacking approach adopted by the players helped them beat the ICC World Test Championship finalists of 2021- India and New Zealand. While they won the rescheduled fifth Test against India to level the long-due series at 2-2, they defeated New Zealand by 3-0 to start off a new phase of Test cricket.

However, England must be aware of South Africa’s potential in this format even though they have a solid squad as a fallback. Kagiso Rabada may not be available for the Proteas in the opening Test, but they still have a strong team that can take the attack to the hosts. A thrilling Test match at the famed Lord’s stadium awaits, with both teams vying to strike first in the series.

South Africa will try to get off to a good start in the Tests against England after a pleasant white-ball series. Prior to the Test series, the South African side faced a major setback when fast bowler Duanne Olivier was forced to withdraw due to a grade 2 hip flexor muscle tear. He sustained the injury while playing the England Lions on tour.

When and where to watch the England vs South Africa matches in India?

The three Tests will take place at Lord’s (London), Old Trafford (Manchester), and Kennington Oval (London) between August 17 to September 12. All three matches are scheduled for 3:30 PM IST, which is 11:00 AM Local Time. In India, the matches will be broadcast on television by the Sony Sports Network, and the same will be live-streamed on SonyLiv.
