England will face off with South Africa on Day One of the second Test at Cape Town with a sense of great confidence after their big victory in the first game. Their confidence will be heightened by the addition of James Anderson to the side after his recovery from injury. England are getting back their long-term spearhead in the team but South Africa on the other hand will have to contend without the service of Dale Steyn who was injured in the first Test and has been rested to recover in favour of the young Kagiso Rabada.

The pressure will be on South Africa captain Hashim Amla who not only has lost an array of games in the recent past but has also had a bleak patch in terms of run-scoring. In fact he is under threat of having his average drop to below 50 if he fails in the match. But personal milestones won’t be of his utmost concern. He has made it clear that to get his team to perform again, he will have to lead by example. PREVIEW: South Africa vs England 2015-16, 2nd Test at Cape Town

AB de Villiers will continue to play an important role in the South African batting line up. The homeside will also hope for Dean Elgar to show the kind of grit that he did in the first innings of the first match when he carried his bat with an unbeaten ton. England will look to press home the advantage in order to try and gain an unassailabe lead.
