Durban:

The International bookies have made India favourites to walk out as winners from the Durban Test though by just a bit, indicating that the probability of India beating South Africa is a little better than India losing.

Bookies are offering winnings of 74 dollars if one bets a 100 dollars on an India win which means that one would get back a total of 174 dollars which includes one's 100 dollar bet.

In case one bets on a South Africa win then one stands to make winnings of 107 dollars on one's bet amount which means a total of 207 dollars.

A draw in the Durban Test is virtually ruled out as bookies are offering a whopping 37,000 dollars on a 100 dollar bet.

It has been a cracking contest in Durban between India and South Africa and the see-saw battle continued on day 3.

The match is on a knife-edge heading to the fourth day, with South Africa needing another 192 runs to win with seven wickets in hand to seal the three-match series against the world's top-ranked team.

India - which has won just one test and never won a series in South Africa - has its sights set on victory at Kingsmead to send it to a deciding third match in Cape Town.


If India win: You win $74 (i.e. you get back $174 which is $74+the original bet of $100)

If South Africa win: You win $107 (i.e. you get back $207 which is $107+the original bet of $100)

Draw: You win $37,000
