Englandheld on to secure a draw in the 1st Test match against South Africa at Centurion Park. An epic partnership between Kevin Pietersen and Jonathan Trott looked to have saved England by a superb burst from debutant De Wet brought the hosts right back into contention however Graeme Onions and Paul Collingwood held on as England ended the match 9 wickets down.
South Africa are ranked number 2 in Test Match cricket and should they win this series by a margin of 2 matches or more they will then regain the number 1 ranking at the expense of India.
South Africa beat England in England 2-1 in a Test Series last summer that was one of Graeme Smith's finest moments as South African captain.
However 4 years ago England went to South Africa and triumphed 2-1 in 2004 England went the whole calendar year without losing a Test Match and were ranked number 2 in Test Match Cricket.

It would take a brave person to Betagainst South Africa winning this series.
