  1. 2nd Test Match was disaster for trading at BetfairBetfair. Firstly WI restricted SA's free run flow which killed trading and rain did the rest of damage.

    For 3rd Test match SA are still favourite. It comes down to the toss and rain to open up trading. If WI bat first then it will be a jackpot match as SA odds will go up if WI manage to establish few good partnerships. Weather is still not too good so keep an eye on draw. Try Tarazu between SA and Draw to keep it balanced.

    • Munna bhai, 1st day no problem about the weather it's look good !! 2nd look heavy rain. Can we lay South Africa if their bat first ? Pls explain if southafrica bat first how to start the trade ?? Just follow ur 2nd test prediction ??

      • Laying SA could be a good strategy as well. In last test WI restricted them so laying would have made instant profit. You can keep laying SA and green up later when odds go up. There will be risk if SA start to bat well and keep scoring runs without any difficulty. If this is the case odds is not going to come up unless there is possibility of draw or WI resistance. Never rely on what happened in last match. Always start fresh with new insights and prediction. I would say wait and watch both score and weather.

    • Munna bhai , great trading with nice profit !!! Now I understood how u trade using weather !!!! Thx rain for always support traders.....bhai , r u check weather in espncricinfo ??? Which site is good for check it ?? Help me dude ....

  2. Best Bet is to Apply on 2-0 for South Africa. Rain will not be major threat.

    First day total run will be 298+/-30 runs (90 overs).

    SA if bat first score line to select is >340. 1st wkt will fall under the score of 40 runs.
