Former captain Mathews, 33, missed the South Africa tour because of a hamstring injury but is expected to be part of the playing eleven in the two Tests against England, which are a part of the ICC World Test Championships.

The series is a resumption of the contest that was halted in March last year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The second Test will be held from January 22 at the same venue. Both the matches will be held behind closed doors because of the pandemic.
