Cape Town - The start of the first day's play in the first Test match between the Proteas and England at Kingsmead, has been delayed. 

Overnight rain means the ground staff need an extra half-an-hour for their preparations.

The toss will now take place at 10h00 with play commencing at 10h30.

Neither the Proteas or England have released their line-ups yet, although Chris Woakes will start for England in place of the injured James Anderson.
