England take on South Africa at Chester-le-Street in Durham on Saturday afternoon in what is the first contest of a three-match Twenty20 series.

With the World Twenty20 coming up in Sri Lanka later this month, both sides will be looking to gain some momentum in the shortest format of the game before they depart these shores.

England – who are aiming to beat South Africa for the first time in a series this summer having lost 2-0 over three Tests and drawn 2-2 over five one-day internationals – see captain Stuart Broad return, having been rested for the 50-over series.

Also expected to feature for the home side alongside Broad are fellow Twenty20 stalwarts Eoin Morgan and Graeme Swann, while the world class quartet of Hashim Amla, Jacques Kallis, Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel will feature for the tourists.
