Following a fantastic century in the warm up match William Hill have trimmed the price of Alastair Cook being England’s top series batsman from 3/1 to 11/4.

Kevin Pietersen is 3/1 second favourite, with Jonathan Trott 10/3. England are certainly going to need their batsman to be on form as India are 4/7 favourites to win the series, with England offered at 7/2.

"We would have liked to have seen KP get a few more runs but Cook is key and the 7/2 for England might tempt a few," said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
