England vs South Africa 1st Test Day 1 Highlights 17 Aug 2022

England vs South Africa 1st Test Highlights today, Wednesday 17-8-2022. 1st Test, South Africa tour of England from Lord’s, London.

Toss: South Africa, elected to field first.

Ben Stokes: We would have bowled first as well. Very lucky to have him (Anderson at 40). Incredible ambassador for the game, for fast bowlers, to show he can do what he does at his age. I can’t see him stopping, he looks as young as ever.
Dean Elgar: Overheads play a big part in that, bit undecided coming here today. But nothing to do with what they’ve (England) done in the past, more to do with the conditions. KG pulled up 100%.

England team: 1 Zak Crawley, 2 Alex Lees, 3 Ollie Pope, 4 Joe Root, 5 Jonny Bairstow, 6 Ben Stokes (capt.), 7 Ben Foakes, 8 Stuart Broad, 9 Jack Leach, 10 Matthew Potts, 11 James Anderson.
