William Hill report that with money coming in to back England for the third Test against Pakistan in Sharjah, they have cut the odds of a series-levelling win to 9/4.

Pakistan are 6/5 favourites and the draw is also 9/4.

England have been trimmed from 5/2 to 9/4 after a run of bets on Alastair Cook's side, who will give a start to James Taylor and hand Jonny Bairstow the wicket-keeping gloves.

"There is a few quid around for England who, despite the recent loss, should be in good spirits," said William Hill cricket betting spokesman Rupert Adams.
