\t\nFaf du Plessis to claim hat-trick - 7.00 odds
\nDu Plessis fancies himself the next Jacques Kallis. In the aftermath of Lollygate, the Proteas captain plans to get creative and was recently sighted at Adelaide's only Bunnings store shopping for red electrical tape. Expect the middle-order batsman to snag a Test hat-trick in a fierce display of swing bowling, only for Channel Nine cameras to reveal after the match he completed the entire over with a half-taped tennis ball in hand.\n

\nMatthew Wade to retire hurt - 3.10 odds
\nWade's banter is terrible. Having struggled to intimidate the South Africans during the ODI series in October, the wicketkeeper is keen to try out some new and improved sledges. Unfortunately, Wadey's a bit undercooked in his preparation and is likely to cop a comeback that leaves him retiring hurt with second-degree burns. Team doctors will be sure to have plenty of ice packs on standby, while the Royal Adelaide Hospital's burns unit is only a short trip away.\n

Exotic Odds: Australia vs South Africa, Third Test

Check out our exotic odds for the final Test between Australia and South Africa.

Despite it being a dead rubber, there's still plenty at stake in the third Test between Australia and South Africa. The Proteas are looking to make history with a 3-0 series whitewash while the Aussies are playing for professional pride. Read on for some cheeky exotic odds.

Nathan Lyon to curate wicket - 4.20 odds
After 582 wicketless deliveries, the GOAT is struggling. However, Lyon has plenty of favours left over from his time as Adelaide Oval groundsman, so pay close attention to the heavy roller early on Thursday morning. If Gazza is driving, you can be sure the track will closely resemble an Indian dust bowl. The off-spinner's efforts preparing the wicket is expected to double as a trial for his old job back when he's the next Australian dropped.

Matt Renshaw to change allegiance - 1.75 odds
Don't count on Renshaw sticking around. After Australia's inevitable top order collapse, expect the English-born batsman to immediately switch his international allegiance to the Poms mid-match. Under ICC rules, a player must wait four years to re-qualify for another side but that won't faze the 20-year-old. Following Australia's double-digit first innings total, Renshaw will be caught calling childhood friend and vice-captain, Joe Root in a bid to represent England for the 2021 Ashes series.

Faf du Plessis to claim hat-trick - 7.00 odds
Du Plessis fancies himself the next Jacques Kallis. In the aftermath of Lollygate, the Proteas captain plans to get creative and was recently sighted at Adelaide's only Bunnings store shopping for red electrical tape. Expect the middle-order batsman to snag a Test hat-trick in a fierce display of swing bowling, only for Channel Nine cameras to reveal after the match he completed the entire over with a half-taped tennis ball in hand.

Matthew Wade to retire hurt - 3.10 odds
Wade's banter is terrible. Having struggled to intimidate the South Africans during the ODI series in October, the wicketkeeper is keen to try out some new and improved sledges. Unfortunately, Wadey's a bit undercooked in his preparation and is likely to cop a comeback that leaves him retiring hurt with second-degree burns. Team doctors will be sure to have plenty of ice packs on standby, while the Royal Adelaide Hospital's burns unit is only a short trip away.

Kevin Pietersen to be thrown out - 2.60 odds
You'd hate to share a beer with Pietersen. The 36-year-old was always an entertaining player but off the field he's just a s**t bloke. While the former England batsman will do his best to sneak into the Proteas dressing room after the Test is finished, South Africa's security have proven they don't mess around. Despite his familiar accent, staff will be under strict team orders to remove the Channel Nine commentator on sight using any force deemed necessary.

All jokes aside, for punters wanting to place a legitimate bet, it's hard to look past South Africa winning the Test given Australia's recent slump and 2.05 odds with Bet365 represents value.
