England vs South Africa 1st Test Live Telecast: The SportsRush presents before you the timing and live streaming details of 1st ENG vs SA Test.

Proceedings in South Africa’s tour of England 2022 have moved to the iconic Lord’s as the venue will be hosting the first Test match from tomorrow. A three-match Test series between these two teams will bring an end to this English international summer.

Set to resume their Test rivalry after over 30 months, England and South Africa will be playing a Test match in England after over half-a-decade.

In what is going to be the 37th bilateral Test series (17th in England) between these two teams, England have won 22 (10 at home) as compared to South Africa’s nine (four overseas) series wins. Hence, it is no surprise as to why England have a massive lead over South Africa in head-to-head Test records.

That being said, South Africa would be banking on the fact that they have been the most successful visiting team in England in the last two decades or so. Only team with a positive win-loss ratio in Test matches in England in this century, the Proteas would want to remain confident despite a large number of their current players not having played Test cricket in this part of the world.
