Cook and Pietersen equal most centuries for England

Pietersen's unbeaten century for England against India:

Alastair Cook and Kevin Pietersen both equalled the record for most England Test centuries as they carried the fight against India on the third morning of the second Test in Mumbai.

Cook fell for 122, 35 minutes before lunch, caught at the wicket by MS Dhoni as R Ashwin found turn and bounce. Ashwin's relief was evident as he ended a stand of 206 in 53 overs which had stirred England's hopes of achieving a victory to square the series.

 Pietersen saw through the session unscathed - 138 not out from 178 balls - as England progressed to within 29 runs of India's first-innings total with six wickets remaining. He added 76 in the morning session without a care in the world, his anxiety in Ahmedabad a distant memory.
