Faf du Plessis will miss the opening Test against England at Lord's to remain with his wife after the "difficult" birth of their first child. Dean Elgar will stand in as captain, leading South Africa for the first time.

After the end of the one-day and T20 series, England and South Africa will now square off in the longer format as the first Test between England and South Africa at Lord’s. This series assumes more importance as this will be the first time that 26-year-old Joe Root will be leading the Three Lions. Hence, it will be interesting to see how England’s premier batsman handles the responsibility.

England won the toss and chose to bat first
