A result venue with only one draw in recent years and that only just. A few showers forecast.

I very much doubt this will go to a draw, and India will likely struggle in the unfamiliar conditions of the High Veldt.

I'll probably lay the draw and back Saf if they bowl first.

Very difficult to score much under 2.5 an over and it’s fewer than that needed given 98 overs tomorrow unless we get very few more in tonight.

I find I get a peculiar feeling of subversive pleasure from backing a highly implausible outcome at massive odds and profiting  when the market over-reacts to it becoming only modestly less implausible. There are also many times I've dug myself out of a loss in limited overs matches (usually ODIs) by backing the outsider in the 100s then getting my 1.02 unexpectedly matched on the favourite.
