William Hill have cut the price of the final test ending in a draw from 15/8 to 13/8 as punters continue to pile on. Hills are not convinced that Ian Bell is now a run machine making him favourite at 6/5 to score twenty four or less and Kevin Pietersen is 10/1 to be out for another duck.

"We have been led to believe that the wicket is a three day wicket but surprisingly all the money has been for the draw," said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
