Pietersen set to lead England to successful tour?
Kevin Pietersen scored a century in England's warm up match on Thursday and he is 6/1 to be the series top batsman of either side and 3/1 co favourite with Alistair Cook to be England's most prolific with the bat in India.
England are 7/2 to win the series with India the odds on favourites at 4/7, a drawn series is 7/2. Virat Kohli is favourite to be the top batsman in India with Virender Sehwag the same price. Cook and Pietersen are joined by Gautam Gambhir at 6/1 and Jonathan Trott is 7/1, the same price as the dangerous Sachin Tendulkar.
"Pietersen will be desperate to justify his inclusion in the squad and if England are to be successful in India it is vital that he delivers," said William Hill spokesman Mark Young.
