England are being well backed to win the second test after thrashing Pakistan in the first match. With one eye on the Ashes cricket fans will be hoping that Pietersen and Cook play themselves into form with Hills opening a book on both batsman's 1st Innings runs. Pietersen is 11/10 to score a fifty, 7/2 to score a hundred and 11/8 to score 24 or less. Despite their woes Hills offer 1/6 that Cook starts the first Ashes test and 1/16 that Pietersen does.
 
"The selectors will be desperate for Cook & Pietersen to show some form at the weekend and the odds suggest that Cook is playing for his Ashes spot!" said Hill's cricket betting spokesman Rupert Adams.
