England have made Test history by becoming the first side ever to name an unchanged line-up for the sixth successive match.

Captain Michael Vaughan announced the same side at Lord's today prior to tomorrow's start of the opening npower Test against South Africa.

Hampshire seamer Chris Tremlett once again missed out from the 12-man squad and Vaughan said: "Hopefully this side will put in a similar performance to the one we delivered against New Zealand at Trent Bridge (when England won by an innings and nine runs).

"I think our performances got better as the New Zealand series went on and we want that to continue against South Africa."
