Australia earlier declared on 111-6 in the rain-affected fifth Test at the Oval, setting England a target of 227 to win the Test and seal their best ever series result.
Pietersen has hit a half-century off 41 balls, while Trott is currently 49 not out as the hosts reached 150-2 with 12 overs left to play.
