South Africa v Australia Test Series Set Up For Exciting Decider
February 26, 2014
Australia’s Test Series with South Africa is all set up for an exciting ending at Cape Town this weekend.
With both sides winning one of the two Tests contested so far, it all comes down to a one Test shootout starting on Saturday.
Australian bookmakers Luxbet are tipping South Africa to make their home advantage count for the second test in a row – as the Proteas are priced at 2.12 favourites to win the Third Test. Australia aren’t too far behind at 2.95, while Luxbet are offering to pay out at 3.70 for the draw.

If Luxbet’s pricing comes into fruition, it will give South Africa their first home Test Series win over Australia since they reinstated as a Test-playing nation 23 years ago.
Meanwhile, Australia will be hoping to avoid a repeat of their last Cape Town appearance in 2011. After opening up a 188-run first innings lead, they were bowled over for just 47 and ended up losing the match by eight wickets.
An interesting sideshow in this Test will be the contest between bowlers Mitchell Johnson and Dale Steyn, with both men key to their side’s chances of winning.
Johnson has a formidible record of 52 wickets from his last 14 innings – averaging 14.71 in that time. However, Steyn proved his worth as International Cricket’s top-ranked bowler when he tore through the Australian batting line-up in the last Test in Port Elizabeth, to help South Africa to a 283-run victory.
