Pietersen the pick at 7/2

Live on Skysports 1: Thurs 03.30: England are bet365′s 4/1 underdogs ahead of the first Test in India but Kevin Pietersen can at least play a part.

After a summer of mixed results that spelled the end of Andrew Strauss’ reign as captain and saw them relinquish top spot in the Test rankings to South Africa, England look to bounce back as they kick-off a four-match series against India.

However, the tourists are William Hill’s 5/1 outsiders to pick up their first victory on Indian soil since 1984-85 while the hosts look like bankers at 4/7 via BetVictor to gain revenge for the 4-0 whitewash they suffered on these shores in 2011.

Similarly, Alistair Cook’s troops are also underdogs, at 4/1 via bet365, to clinch victory in the first Test in Ahmedabad where Stan James price the home side at 6/4 and Sportingbet rate the draw at 7/5 but the best bet in that clash could be Ladbrokes’ 7/2 for Kevin Pietersen to be his team’s top batsman.

The England slogger has plenty to prove now that he has been allowed back into the fold following the summer’s text message controversy and after his century in the final warm-up game, he can answer his critics in fine style.

Recommended Bets:
Kevin Pietersen to be England’s top batsman in the first Test – 7/2 (Ladbrokes)
