SA vs ENG Dream11: South Africa will face England in the first Test match at the SuperSport Park in Centurion, starting on Thursday. Both sides currently are going through a transition period and this series will play an important role for both teams in laying out the plans for the future. With a number of players suffering from illness, England have only limited resources now to tackle the Proteas threat. South African roster, on the other hand, features as many as seven uncapped players which will mark the beginning of a new era for the Proteas cricket. However, both teams would be eager to strike the first blow by winning the first test to set the tone for the whole series.
