England are a massive 33/1 with BlueSQ to win the fourth and final test against South Africa at the Wanderers after a first innings debacle that saw them skittled out for just 180. After a truly forgettable first innings that saw Andrew Strauss and Ryan Sidebottom fail to score and South African born Jonathan Trott and Kevin Pietersen fail to get into double figures, England are a long shot to successfully defend their slender 1-0 lead in the four test series. In reply, South Africa were 160/1 at lunch on day two. England need only a draw (3/1) to take the series after their victory in the second test but that is looking increasingly unlikely, with the home side destined to clock up a big first innings score. The state of play in the fourth test has pushed the draw on the betting exchanges to just 8/25.
