Stokes’ approach ruffled the feathers of Test purists. But “buzzball” brought dramatic victories and great entertainment as England beat New Zealand and India in June and July, chasing victory in scintillating style. In both series, England had a combination of both traditional batting and firepower. While Joe Root was resilient and at his traditional best, Jonny Bairstow was in beast mode throughout.

Stokes spoke about how he wants to change the way Test cricket is played, urging his team to run fast and always look for wickets in an aggressive manner. There is little reason to expect anything different as England bid for a fifth straight Test win at Lord’s on Wednesday, against a team whose strength is their pace bowling attack.

But Dean Elgar has already challenged Ben Stokes, saying “I want to see them do it against our seamers.”

South Africa, however, have lost Duane Olivier to a hip injury and are sweating on the fitness of key bowler Kagiso Rabada, who is suffering from an ankle injury. Elgar said last week that getting the 27-year-old seamer fit was his team’s top priority. They also lost by an innings and 56 runs against the hosts’ second string, England Lions, in a four-day warm-up match in Canterbury last week.

The Lions attacked the South Africans with bat and ball in the next two Tests at Lord’s and at Old Trafford and The Oval.

Since Elgar took over as captain in March, 2021, South Africa have won seven out of nine matches and topped the World Test Championship table, set to meet Australia in next year’s final.
