Stan James have extended their cricket concessions for the forthcoming ODI series between England and South Africa to include money back on losing bets on the outright market on bets placed prior to the toss if Kevin Pietersen scores 100 in the respective ODI. They have also opened a book on which South African born batsman scores most runs in the series and make KP a 4/1 shot and England skipper Andrew Strauss 11/2.

Head of PR Charlie McCann:" We just favour Pietersen at 4/1 ahead of Kallis and Smith (9/2) as top South African born batsman during the series. Given KP scored three 100s in the five ODI's when he last played in his native South Africa we will certainly be hoping that lightning doesn't strike twice in this series or we will be refunding an awful lot of cash. KP is just back from injury and has struggled for form in the limited opportunities he has had, but he will be fired up for another crack at Graeme Smith's side. The recent crampgate episode when Strauss refused a runner for the South African captain in the Champions Trophy will ensure there is an extra bit of needle in what promises to be a cracking series."     

Three reasons to make Stan James your cricket bookmaker for England v South Africa:

(i) Both sides paid out as winners on outright market on bets placed prior to the toss in the event of a tie
(ii) Money back on losing bets on the outright market, on bets placed prior to the toss, if Kevin Pietersen scores a 100 in his innings.
(iii) Money back if your top bat selection, bets placed prior to the toss, scores 100 but fails to top score in the innings (note this concession will be carried over to the Test series between the sides).
