England are 2/1 to not win a game in the ICC Champions Trophy ahead of their opener against Sri Lanka.

Andrew Strauss's men are 7/4 to beat their first opponents on the back of their 6-1 series defeat against Australia.

The skipper is 5/2 favourite with Ladbrokes to top score for his country during the tournament.

Jimmy Anderson is the same price to be their leading wicket-taker after his broadside against his team-mates.

And the firm are even offering 100/1 that Tillakeratne Dilshan scores more tournament runs than England after his 106 against South Africa.
