Australia claimed a convincing 118-run victory at Kingsmead last Monday and will head to the Friendly City full of confidence.

The build-up to the Test has been overshadowed by the ongoing row - and subsequent fining - of Australian opener David Warner and Proteas wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock and fireworks can be expected in Port Elizabeth.

BET.co.za have the Proteas on offer at 3/2, while Australia can be backed at 11/10.

The draw is on offer at 4/1.

The first ball is due to be bowled at 10:00.
