After a summer which saw them crowned world champions and draw an Ashes series, England end the year and begin the new one touring South Africa. Alongside three ODI's and three T20 matches, there's a four-match Test series which kicks off on Boxing Day. You can watch all of the action no matter where you are in the world with our South Africa vs England live stream cricket guide.
With both teams entering something of a transition phase, its a series that is set to give some sort of indication of England and South Africa's cricketing futures.
The Proteas are in the middle of a big rebuilding period both on and off the field, with former captain Graeme Smith taking over as interim director of cricket and Mark Boucher just appointed as head coach, while fast bowlers Dane Paterson and Beuran Hendricks have been drafted into the Test series squad.
England will be looking to blood the likes of Dom Sibley and Ollie Pope into this Test side, however preparations for the tour have been less than ideal for Joe Root's men.
A sickness bug has struck the camp, with Jofra Archer, Stuart Broad and Jack Leach all laid low by flu-like symptoms, causing their final warm-up match to be downgraded.
The sickness drama isn't likely to alter what looks set to be a fascinating series however. So follow the instructions below to watch all of the action where we'll tell you how to grab a South Africa vs England live stream from pretty much anywhere on Earth.
