July 17, 2012, 8:12 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- For the final Test match of the year, and possibly the deciding match of the season and international rankings, England take on South Africa at Lord's Cricket Ground from 16 to 20 August.
England are currently riding high as the leaders of the cricket world after wins against Australia, but South Africa may pose the biggest threat to the leaders yet. South Africa's Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel are arguably the most dangerous fast bowling pair in the world. The South Africans aren't short of batsmen either; Graeme Smith, Jacques Kallis and AB de Villiers are sure to put England's skills to the test.
