Englandwon the toss and opted to field 1st in the 1st Test Match against South Africa at Centurion Park.
Hosts South Africa go into this series knowing that a victory by the margin of two games will see them go back to number 1 in the rankings for Test Match cricket The 2 teams have had some very close encounters in Test Cricket in recent times, 4 years ago England beat South Africa in South Africa 2-1 while last summer South Africa returned the favour beating England on their own turf by the same score.

England on the other hand will be looking for some solid performances to consolidate their successful summer when they regained the Ashes at home.

This will be Graeme Smith's 4th Series in charge against England and he will be desperate to lead his country to victory against England at home for the 1st time.

It is hard to see England upsetting the Betting Oddsand winning the series.
