England are 4/9 with Stan James to win the 4 Test Series with South Africa following another successful rearguard action in the 3rd Test in Cape Town. The hosts who trail 1-0 are 13/8 to tie the Series in Johannesburg next week with the Tourists 2/1 to take the series 2-0 and the draw in the Final Test also priced up at 13/8. 

Head of Cricket Betting PR Charlie McCann:" The long term weather forecast for the Final Test at the "Bull Pit" in Johannesburg is not great, and it would be no surprise if a result wicket was prepared given South Africa must feel aggrieved not to be level, at the very least, in this wonderful series. This may not be the greatest England side to leave these shores, but they have courage aplenty and we make them a 4/9 shot to get a minimum of a draw in Johannesburg beginning on January 14th."
