How to watch the South Africa vs England Test cricket series

Posted: 26 December 2019 6:00 am

South Africa, ranked 3rd in the ICC Test cricket rankings, face No.4 England in a four-Test series that gets underway at 7pm AEDT on Boxing Day, 26 December.

Under their new coach Mark Boucher, the hosts are keen to quickly recover from a heavy 3-0 Test whitewash in India in October. The English line-up will also have their recent Test series defeat in New Zealand fresh in their minds. That series wrapped up earlier this month.

Who will win South Africa vs England?

Both teams come into this match-up with something to prove. England were combative but ultimately unsuccessful in their efforts to regain The Ashes from Australia. They then narrowly lost to New Zealand away from home.

The South Africans are under the pump following their heavy loss to India and a change in their coaching ranks. England has performed well in South Africa at times, but we suspect the hosts might be a bit too strong on home soil this time around.
