Cricket Betting: KP Odds On.......
Kevin Pietersen is 7/2 with Ladbrokes to end his run of twenty-three innings without a test hundred at the Home of Cricket. The former captain has hit four centuries in ten tests at HQ, and would love to register a ton before heading off to Australia.
Meanwhile, England openers Andrew Strauss and Alistair Cook are on the brink of becoming England's most prolific opening partnership, needing just 54 more runs required to pass Jack Hobbs and Herbert Sutcliffe, who amassed 3249 runs in the 1920s.
The pair are 6/4 to notch the runs in the first innings, and 1/2 that they break the record at some point in the match.
Pakistan are 4/1 to beat England and square the series, but England remain 8/11 favourites to win, with the draw at 9/4.
Cricket betting spokesman David Williams of Ladbrokes, said: “KP hasn’t been in the best of touch lately but he loves batting at Lord’s. The stage could be set for some more Pietersen magic.”
