Following their extraordinary victory in the first Test, England are 8-13 with Coral to take an unassailable 2-0 series lead against Sri Lanka in the second Test at Lords. The tourists are 13-2 to level the series, with the draw 2-1, while England’s player of the year, Jonathan Trott, is 4-1 to score a century in the first innings.
“The first Test ended well for us, as the draw was heavily backed, but with more settled weather forecast for the week ahead, 80% of the bets we’ve taken so far have been for a home win, with punters expecting Andrew Strauss’s men to wrap up the series win,” said Coral’s David Stevens.
