Cape Town - The Proteas are narrow favourites for victory in the third Test against England at the Wanderers - if bookmakers are to be believed...

AB de Villiers' men will be chasing victory at the Bullring which will see them level the four-Test series at 1-1, with just the Centurion Test next week (January 22-26), remaining.

Local bookmakers Sportingbet have installed the Proteas as 8/5 favourites, with England - and the draw - both on offer at 15/8.

The Proteas may well have to battle not only their English opponents, but the elements as well, with rain and thunderstorms forecast for each day of the Test.
