Cape Town - Graeme Smith's Proteas team will win the third and final Test at Lord's on Monday, if bookmakers are to be believed...

Leading SA bookies, JustBet, have the Proteas on offer at 44/100 to claim the remaining eight England wickets needed for victory on Monday's fifth day.

The draw is on offer at 15/8, while England are considered outsiders for victory at 18/1.

England enter Day 5 on 16/2, requiring a further 330 runs for victory to square the three-Test series at 1-1.

South Africa need to avoid defeat to take over as the No 1 Test team in the world.

HAVE YOUR SAY: Will Graeme Smith's men claim the remaining eight England wickets and wrap up the series against England? Or will England stage a remarkable Day 5 comeback? Send your thoughts to Sport24.
