Ok, so I know England's record at C T isn't good. And I suspect someone 'knows' that Colly is out of the 3rd test. But come on!! Did people not witness the demolition of SA in the last match?

Obviously SA will try to come back hard at Eng (phanar) but I like momentum betting - has rewarded me well consistently.

4.2? I'm on England pre match. Thank you gentlemen.

BTW - agree that it should be Wright at 7.
Pause Switch to Standard View England 4.2?? You're having a laugh...

The market would be wrong to rate Collingwood's appearance or absence as of any great importance to their winning chances imo. He is not a player who wins test matches, not even a regular strong contributor to wins.

You could argue differently about his impact on the chances of a draw occurring quite reasonably based on his record though.

Deadly - yeah, that's kinda what I'm saying. I just don't understand it. The price move feels like Anderson or Swan are out!!??

the strange thing is that england have gone out to 4.2 because of the draw coming in

can't figure the reasoning for this?
Report Asparagus Man January 1, 2010 4:45 PM GMT
Seems remarkable England should shift from 3.5 to 4.2 on the basis of Colly being 50-50.

Market doesn't seem to rate England at all.

If Eng bat first, and do OK, I can see the draw trading low quickly (again).

Eng 3.8 at tip off imho. If they don't trade lower than 4.2 at some point during the test I'm a monkey's uncle.

"Ooo ooo, banana!"

Well two possibilities here. Either someone has found out the pitch will be a 'road' (and we know this is almost ALWAYS unreliable information) or the weather forecast has deteriorated markedly.

Anyone got any info?

haven't seen much change in weather, looks pretty good through the test. Possible reasons for market favouring SA Steyn and Kallis should be fitter and Ntini should be out. I think SA's problems with Swann could continue here + conditions could suit Anderson and Broad. After the Durban result the price on england looks too big.

Enggggggerland will settle for draw .... market recognising that ;)

At 1-0 up i expect a cautious approach from england ... they will seek to bat..bat...and at some more ... there will ot be any generous declarations... they will make taking time out of the game a bigger priority then setting up a win ;)

big Joe - accept what you're saying and you might be right. But, as you know, it's extremely dangerous trying to play for a draw at a 'result venue'. I don't think this match will end in a draw and so, at 4.2, I think Eng are value. Market recognising that as the draw England price has come in slightly. 4.2 is (was) an excellent posi to trade from imho.

Surely England have also gone out to 4.2 because it looks certain De Wet will replace Ntini?

Cape Town weather forecast.

Still doesn't seem to be done and dusted that Ntini will be dropped. Smith and Arthur noncommital.

I wonder if they are still sweating on Steyn's fitness a bit - hence no announcement yet?
Report DarkDagger January 2, 2010 3:21 PM GMT
Okay, thought the 39C figure looked wrong anyway given Cape Town's coastal position...

That should be better.

if they dont drop maky they might as well just give england the trophy.
