No real home advantage for South Africa
South Africa and England have shared an intensely close rivalry over the last couple of decades. As they square off in a four-Test series starting later this week, we explore just how closely matched the teams have been and examine South Africa's frailty at home.
- In nine series since 1994, only one series has been won by a margin of more than one Test
- England have won 10 and South Africa 13 of the 29 Tests between the teams since 1994
- South Africa have lost 14 of their 47 Tests at home since January 2006
