Pakistan are 9/2 to beat England at Lord's and square the Test series, according to Ladbrokes.

The tourists survived a wobble before securing victory at The Oval - but England remain the 8/11 favourites to win at HQ. The draw is 2/1. England are 1/8 to secure a series win heading into the final match.

England openers Andrew Strauss and Alistair Cook are on the brink of becoming England's most prolific opening partnership with just 54 more runs required to pass Hobbs and Sutcliffe who amassed 3249 runs in the 1920s.

Ladbrokes make it 6/4 that Strauss and Cook notch the runs in the 1st innings at Lord's and 1/2 that they break the record at some point in either innings.

Cricket betting spokesman David Williams said: "Cook's return to form and Strauss's return to his home patch ought to see the openers set the record, but they may have to be patient."
