This match will be skipper Joe Root's first match in charge since replacing Alastair Cook at helm. Meanwhile as for the Proteas, Deal Elgar will lead them in this clash as Faf Du Plessis will miss the match due to personal reasons.

The last time England played in a Test series was against India last year. The Three Lions lost 4-0 to Virat Kohli and his troops in the Indian subcontinent and will look to start this series on a better note at the Mecca of Cricket.

Meanwhile, South Africa have not lost a Test series since England last toured in 2015 and beat them on home soil. Since then, the Proteas have beaten New Zealand away from home and also drubbed Sri Lanka 3-0 at home.
