South Africa and England meet at Kingsmead on Saturday in the first of four Tests between two evenly-match teams, both seeking a return to winning ways.

South Africa were trounced 3-nil by India recently in their biggest setback since becoming the top-ranked Test team in 2012, while England were beaten 2-nil by Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates in their most recent series.

Both teams will relish a return to more familiar conditions after struggling on slow, spin-friendly pitches during their defeats.

The absence of leading bowler James Anderson because of a calf strain is a major blow to England at a ground where swing bowlers often prosper, while the return to action after injury of Dale Steyn is a boost for South Africa.
