England are 3/1 to win the series in South Africa and punters continue to back England at that price. England are 50/1 to win the series 4-0 with South Africa 14/1 to do the same.

"With Flintoff retired Anderson is the key England bowler and we think it was a precautionary decision to leave him out of the warm up game," said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
