As England and South Africa are set to lock horns with each other in the second Test at Trent Bridge on Friday, we take a look at few of key statistics leading to the encounter.

Team Preview:

South Africa are yet to win a game against England at Trent Bridge since their readmission into Test cricket with the hosts registering wins of eight wickets and 70 runs in the two matches.

In their last five games between the two teams, England have lost to South Africa on only one occasion.

The last time South Africa lost two consecutive away games was in 2015 when they toured India.

In their last seven games at Trent Bridge, England have won six and drawn one. The team batting first have won only once in the last four games at the venue with the remaining three results ending in one draw and two defeats.

Individual Preview:

Hashim Amla just needs three more runs to become the fourth South African batsman to cross 8,000 runs in Test cricket.

James Anderson, who is leading wicket taker at the venue with 53 scalps, needs one more wicket to become the first bowler to claim 300 wickets in England and Wales.

At number seven, Moeen Ali averages 78.80 which is the most for any batsman with 10 innings or more.

The last time England played at Trent Bridge, it was Stuart Broad, who decimated Australia with figures of 15 for eight - his best-ever innings haul in a Test match.
