Cape Town - The Proteas will bowl first in the first Test against England at Lord's after captain Dean Elgar lost the toss on Thursday.

England captain Joe Root had no hesitation in opting to make first use of the wicket.

The Lord's pitch looked a touch greener than usual, prompting speculation before the toss that whoever won might opt to bowl first. 

The Proteas have not lost at Lord's since re-admission, winning four and drawing one of their five matches at the venue.

Teams:

England

Alastair Cook, Keaton Jennings, Joe Root (captain), Gary Ballance, Jonny Bairstow, Ben Stokes, Moeen Ali, Liam Dawson, Stuart Broad, Mark Wood, James Anderson

SA

Dean Elgar (captain), Heino Kuhn, Hashim Amla, JP Duminy, Temba Bavuma, Theunis de Bruyn, Quinton de Kock, Vernon Philander, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Morne Morkel
