The four match test series between South Africa vs England will start on Saturday, Dec 26 at Kingsmead, Durban, with the Boxing Day Test Match Prediction for who will win the match give true match prediction for South Africa vs England test match. South Africa has edge with home ground and experience players.
The test series between South Africa and England seems to be one sided as this is a series between the No 1-rated side in the world, who have lost only two of their last 16 series, and the fifth-ranked side favorite for boxing day test match prediction. A team that has won three of its last 14 away contests against Top Eight nations. Still, there is a sub-plot which means that the contest could be a little more nuanced than a home side duffing up tourists in line with the recent trend.
This boxing day test match prediction show fascinating competition between Dale Steyn and James Anderson and if you believe that Test series are won by the side most likely to take 20 wickets, then it is arguable that whoever bowls better out of these skilled performers will take the spoils. Steyn, at 32, is a modern great. Anderson likewise and that they go head-to-head at a stage in their careers when they at their artistic peak is a treat.
England batting line-up is not that impressive fact for boxing day test match prediction. Alastair Cook, Joe Root and James Taylor (we have confidence he is the real deal despite limited exposure) aside, Alex Hales, Nick Compton, Ben Stokes and Jonny Bairstow have much to prove individually. Collectively, too. This England team has looked structurally weak. Collapses have occurred at Bridgetown against West Indies, at Lord’s and the Oval against Australia and in Dubai against Pakistan. Against a fierce bowling attack, it would be a surprise if England do not fold at least twice.
South Africa, getting used to Hashim Amla’s captaincy, have had problems of their own. They have been struggling with the onerous task of trying to replace Jacques Kallis for boxing day test match prediction. For this series they will try to cram in an extra batter or bowler by utilising AB De Villiers as a wicketkeeper. When that is the solution it hardly feels like a problem.
England Test Team Squad: Alastair Cook, Moeen Ali, James Anderson, Jonathan Bairstow, Gary Ballance, Stuart Broad, Jos Buttler, Nick Compton, Mark Footitt, Alex Hales, Chris Jordan, Samit Patel, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, James Taylor, Chris Woakes.
South Africa Test Team Squad: Hashim Amla (capt), Kyle Abbott, Temba Bavuma, AB de Villiers, JP Duminy, Faf du Plessis, Dean Elgar, Morne Morkel, Dane Piedt, Kagiso Rabada, Rilee Rossouw, Dale Steyn, Stiaan van Zyl.
It’s very clear in the Boxing Day Test Match Prediction that South Africa will win the toss and ball first and win the match as well with no problem. Although England players will try their hard to give a little fight.
