Lords weather forecast: The SportsRush presents before you the weather prediction for the first ENG vs SA Test Day 1.

The first Test match of South Africa’s tour of England 2022 will kick-start at the Lord’s from tomorrow. The last leg of the ongoing South African tour will comprise of a three-match Test series which will bring an end to this English international summer.

Unbeaten at home this year, England have sealed four run-chases in a row to put forward a whole new dimension of this format. In no less Test form, South Africa should be brimming with confidence on the back of winning five out of their six Tests in 2022.

While the hosts have already announced their Playing XI for this match, the visitors appear like doing the same at the toss on Wednesday. Readers must note that the only change made by England is bringing back wicket-keeper batter Ben Foakes in place of Sam Billings.
