Preview 4th Test @ The Oval 7-11 August
With the series already wrapped up, South Africa will be seeking to make Kevin Pietersen's first game as captain one to remember for all the wrong reasons. Now with the added burden of leadership on his shoulders, will it affect his batting? And with Michael Vaughan sitting this one out, there is a chance for Ian Bell to stake a claim for the number three spot in the side.
We preview the spreads for the last test in the series and try to find some value on the spreads of Sporting Index & IG Sport.

Monty Panesar -Certain to get through at least 50 overs at the Oval where the pitch on the last two days often deteriorates to assist the spinners. Will enjoy the challenge of dis-lodging the SA top six batsmen. Conditions should assist him greatly -so it would be no surprise to see him taking 5 wickets in an innings.
GUIDE -Buy series performance @140 (Sporting Index)

Makhaya Ntini -Regarded as the engine room of the SA attack, he has taken 351 test wickets at 28.36 apiece. Took ten wickets at Lords back in 2003 and once in every 5 games takes 5 wickets in an innings. A genuinely quick bowler who will unsettle all the England batsmen as part of SA's three-pronged fast bowling attack that is without the injured Dale Steyn.
GUIDE- Buy series performance @ 112(Sporting Index)


Jacques Kallis -As one of the world's top three test batsmen, Kallis should have made mincemeat of the England attack -but he just hasn't fired in this series and may only get one more chance at the crease. Has scored only 93 runs in the series.
GUIDE -Sell series runs @ 188 (IG Sport)

Stuart Broad -With a test average of 41, he is fast becoming a genuine all-rounder. Should have plenty of chances to bat when England's middle order do their usual 'deck of cards' collapse. He looks under-priced having shown some of the batting qualities of his test-opener father Chris Broad.
GUIDE -Buy his series run @ 235 (Sporting Index)


Total Number of Wides) - The South Africans have been responsible for 23 of the 34 wides bowled so far this series. They should get two cracks at England in the final test and with Ntini, Nel and Morkel all wanting to knock Pietersen and Flintoff's block off then it could go anywhere! Add to that the return of the erratic Harmison and the umpires propensity to give more test match wides these days then anything over ten and you are into profit.
GUIDE -A promising buy @ 34.5 (Sporting Index)
