When last reports came in, England had scored 36 runs for the loss of one wicket in 11 overs.
Tim Bresnan retains his place at No. 8 for England despite the strong case made by Steven Finn during the recent ODI's.
For South Africa, JP Duminy is set to come in at No. 7 following Mark Boucher's enforced retirement, with AB de Villiers taking the gloves.
Imran Tahir, the legspinner, brings another dimension to the attack but first of all it will be the mouthwatering prospect of watching Dale Steyn, Vernon Philander and Morne Morkel.
Cricinfo.com reported, "That weather again tried to have an impact on proceedings as a dark cloud came across the ground just as the captains prepared for the toss at 10.30am and led to a 20-minute delay, with the start time pushed back to 11.15am.
"There is the chance for further showers during the day, but there is expected to be a glimmer of summer finally arriving later in the game."
