The Three Lions recently lost the three-match ODI series against India and would be keen to bounce back stronger in this series.
Jos Buttler will lead the England side while Keshav Maharaj will captain the Proteas side, as their regular skipper Temba Bavuma has been ruled out of the series due to elbow injury.
The wicket-keeper batter Quinton de Kock has recovered from his bruised finger and will be available for selection in the first match. The Proteas side will also miss the services of star pacer Kagiso Rabada, who is rested for the ODIs.
This match will also mark the final ODI for the star all-rounder Ben Stokes, who announced a shocking retirement on Monday from the 50-overs format.
South Africa also played two warm-up matches against England Lions last week. They lost the first game after the England Lions chased down the target of 319 runs in just 37.1 overs. The Proteas bounced back in the second game and won by 107 runs after posting a total of 360 runs on the board.
