Number of pitches favouring seamers or batsmen: 4
Number of pitches taking spin by Day 5: 0

Moeen stands a chance of spending the series effectively as a specialist number 8 batsman unless he performs the unbelievable on unhelpful surfaces.

AB and Steyn to top the run chart and wickettakers list respectively for SA. Root and Broad to do the same for England. Styan van Zyl isn't test class, and Hales isn't very promising in challenging conditions. Both of them might have to wait a bit for their next test opportunities after the series.
As for the series, looking forward to a good battle. SA at home aren't the force they otherwise used to be outside before the India series, still it might be a bit too much for England.......

Sorry for being a bit late to this party but predictions genuinely made before start of first Test (best proof of that now is England's top run scorer). Besides incompetence, my biggest difficulty here is that I don't know enough about SA's players. Anyway, here goes!

Score - 2-1 to S A.
Run scorer - England - Cook
Run scorer - SA - Amla
Wicket taker - England - Stokes
Wicket taker - SA - Steyn
Opener least likely etc - no idea, think Hales and Compton will survive beyond this series
Man of series - Steyn
