South Africa opt to bat in Third test against England

Alastair Cook of England and AB de Villiers of South Africa walk out for the toss during day 1 of the 3rd Test match between South Africa and England at Bidvest Wanderers Stadium on January 14, 2016 in Johannesburg, South Africa.

South Africa won the toss and elected to bat first on day one of the third Test with England, in Johannesburg. It’s AB de Villiers’ first outing as South Africa’s Test skipper, since replacing Hashim Amla who stepped down last week. The hosts have brought in wicket-keeper Dane Vilas as a late replacement for the injured Quinton de Kock, while England have named an unchanged side. England lead the four-match series 1-0 after winning the first Test in Durban.
