England Backed to win 2nd Test

William Hill have trimmed the price of England winning the second test from Evens to 10/11 as punters put their money on Alastair Cook and his team to come good.

Both Alastair Cook and Jonathan Trott are very short of runs and William Hill are 5/6 that Cook scores 33 or less, with Trott 5/6 to score less than 29.
