England Cut For Test Series

CRICKET BETTING: William Hill have cut the price of England winning the Test series against South Africa from 4/1 to 3/1 after the Durban weather helped them clinch victory in the one-dayers on Friday.

William Hill have cut the price of England winning the Test series against South Africa from a starting price of 4/1 to 3/1 after the Durban weather helped them clinch victory in the one-dayers on Friday.

Drizzle began sweeping across a playing area at Kingsmead under full cover from around noon local time – two and a half hours before the scheduled start. Heavier rain then set in, preventing any play and resulting in an eventual abandonment at 1500 GMT.

Although England captain Andrew Strauss had insisted on the eve of the match his team wanted the opportunity to turn their 2-1 lead into a 3-1 triumph, the washout was very much in their favour.

England therefore became only the second tourists – after Australia – to win a one-day series in South Africa.

Now the attention turns to the Tests and Strauss is the 5/2 favourite to be top bat, while Kevin Pietersen is a 3/1 shot. Jimmy Anderson is a 5/2 to take the most wickets and Stuart Broad can be backed at 7/2.

“South Africa have shown very little in the ODI series and you can see why punters think England are a great price. That said South Africa at home are a very tough nut to crack,” said Hill‘s spokesman Rupert Adams.
