William Hill have cut the price of the second Test ending in a draw from 3/1 to 5/2 as the weather is expected to take a chunk out of play. Hills now offer 10/11 that the match finishes on the fifth day and 13/8 the fourth. Punters also seem to think that Pietersen will be back in the runs and he has been well backed at 11/10 to score fifty plus.
 
"Punters think the only thing that can stop England winning is the weather and over 65% of bets today have been for the draw," said Hill's cricket betting spokesman Rupert Adams.
