England are quoted at 10/3 to win the series against India with the inclusion of Kevin Pietersen according to Ladbrokes.

The hosts remain the odds-on favourites at 8/13 to take the series, however thanks to Pietersen being added into the squad England are given a 10/3 chance of causing an upset.

It's 5/4 that India win the 1st Test with the visitors chalked up as the 7/2 outsiders, but there's a 5/2 chance that KP makes his return one for the ECB to remember by hitting a ton in the match, it's 9/2 he does it in the 1st innings or 7/1 his comeback is one to forget with a duck.

Pietersen's just 3/1 to be the top series runscorer  for England or 8/1 for the whole Tour.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: "Now that KP's back in the frame we strongly fancy England to cause an upset. On the field he's one of the best and the odds reflect that with his inclusion in the squad."
