First Test vs South Africa

It's the last session of the second day at Centurion, England have just been bowled out for 181, conceding a first innings lead of 107.  This after Joe Root had won the toss and asked the Saffers to bat.

Several questions arise.
Why didn't England pick a spinner?
How did Bairstow get another chance?
Why do England ALWAYS lose the first test of any series?
Why did Root not choose to bat?
How many times has Root inserted a team having won the toss and how many times has this ploy worked?
