Ollie Robinson has returned from a long injury. However, Ben Stokes has decided to trust Matthew Potts for the Lord’s Test while in the squad. Jack Leach will be the only spinner in the 1st Test.

However, they are struggling with double injuries for South Africa. South African pace spearhead Kagiso Rabada suffered an injury during the T20 series and it is still unclear whether he will play. Worse, Duane Olivier is also out with an injury, and suddenly the visitors look a bit shaky in the pace department. However, spinner Simon Harmer is back, and he will look to form a strong spin combination with Keshav Maharaj.

South Africa’s batting looks strong with Elgar, Keegan Pietersen and Rassie van der Dusen. The trio will have to do the bulk of the runs against England, who are in red hot form. Jonny Bairstow scored 7 centuries in 2022 and he also bats aggressively. The hosts chased more than 300 twice in the fourth innings. All their batters have adopted this ultra-aggressive approach and so far, it has paid huge dividends. England will want to play a fearless brand of cricket against South Africa as well.
