England are tipped to win the fourth and final test of the series against Pakistan as Paddy Power quotes England at 4/6 to win the match and 12/5 to draw which would earn England a 2-1 series win.

Pakistan however will be looking to build on their strong performance at the Oval and tie the series 2-2, they are 4/1 to win this week’s Test. Strauss and Pietersen are still the two batsman likely to get the scoring going for the home team and both are 7/2 to be the top runscorer in England’s first innings.

The return of Mohammad Yousuf has certainly galvanised the Pakistan batting order and he is 3/1 to top the scoring for Pakistan. However with potential batting collapses from both teams, the bowlers will be preparing for another chance to attack. Jimmy Anderson is the 2/1 favourite for England to take the most 1st innings wickets followed by Swann at 5/2.

Little separates the three main Pakistan bowlers with Amir 2/1, Asif and Ajmal both 9/4 to claim the biggest haul for their team. Roberto Coladangelo cricket beting spokesman for Paddy Power said; “Despite a wobble in the last Test, England’s form makes them clear favourites to wrap up the series with a win.

This is the last Test match before the Ashes in the winter so every player will be looking to put in a strong performance to boost confidence and make sure of their place in the team.
