Test Cricket makes a return to the calendar as England gets ready to take on South Africa. The term 'Bazball' is going to enter the lexicon once more (however much the teams try to avoid it) and there will be a lot of interest in whether England can continue its remarkable approach with success.
South Africa has a lot at stake. It is currently at the top of the World Test Championship standings but it has some tough away tours coming up. It will need to find a way to win outside of its conditions to stand a chance of competing for the WTC Title.
It looks as if all the best cricket betting sites are offering short odds on England to win this match. Let us see if there are some good betting opportunities available for this match.
Match prediction and cricket betting tips for England vs South Africa 1st Test Match 2022. The match is going to be played at Lord's, London from the 17th of August 2022 onwards.
England will go into this match as the clear favorite. It has had an excellent summer of Test cricket where it pulled off four absolutely dramatic chases against New Zealand and India. The team is full of confidence and playing with a clarity that is often hard to achieve.
Joe Root is the best batsman in the world in Test Cricket. There is no question about it and his will be the most important wicket once more. We respect form a lot and will be betting on him to score runs in this match as well.
Ben Stokes, Jonny Bairstow, and Ben Foakes are some of the other batters that you can look to bet on to score runs in this match as well. Also look for betting markets that allow you to punt on Bairstow's fours or sixes.
Ollie Robinson is back in the mix for England but he may not play the first Test. Jimmy Anderson, Stuart Broad, Matt Potts, and Jack Leach are expected to be the four bowlers that start with Stokes filling in as required.
We have all seen what England is capable of and it should provide a massive amount of entertainment once more.

South Africa has had some success in Test cricket recently. Most of that came at home, though, and this is its first away series since Covid restrictions have been eased. There are a couple of injury concerns for the team. Temba Bavuma and Duanne Olivier are both not available for this series and that is a pretty big loss.
We expect to see Aiden Markram slot in for Bavuma. The South African batting lineup looks a bit vulnerable to us, all things considered. Dean Elgar, Sarel Erwee, Keegan Petersen, Aiden Markram, Rassie van der Dussen, and Kyle Verreynne are the players most likely to start.
We can see this lineup struggle in English conditions and find the runs hard to come by.
Among the bowlers, Anrich Nortje, Lungi Ngidi, and Lutho Sipamla are likely to be the fast bowlers picked with Keshav Maharaj the lone spinner. Kagiso Rabada is in the squad but reports suggest that he is not fully fit and may not play the first Test.

The team that wins the toss is likely to want to field first. Both teams would like to make the most of any help that is on offer and gain an early advantage.

There is some rain around in London during the Test Match and so we are more than likely to have some interruptions. The forecast does improve from the second day onward and so we should hopefully not have trouble getting a result.
The pitch will offer a bit of help for the fast-bowlers first up but then generally becomes an excellent wicket to bat on. A score of around 300 should be considered quite good in the first inning.

We are going to bet on England to win. We think England has a stronger batting lineup, is playing better cricket, and also has a bowling attack that is immensely experienced. It should be able to get the better of South Africa in home conditions.
Bet on England to win.
Root last seven Test innings have been 142*, 31, 86*, 5,3,176, 115*. The trend clearly shows how well he is playing and also that he either gets out cheaply or goes on to make a big one. In his current form, we are happy to bet on him to score runs.
Jonny Bairstow has unlocked something special in his batting since the last few days. He is scoring runs consistently and a tremendous rate with boundaries his main focus. If he stays for any significant length of time at the crease, he will rocket past 2.5 boundaries with ease.
