England are 4/9 with Ladbrokes to win the Test series against Sri Lanka.

It's 10/11 they win the opening test with 4/1 the price the tourists cause an upset. It's 13/8 the first match is drawn with 10/3 the entire series ends all square.

Andrew Strauss is the 7/2 favourirte to be the top England batsmen with Pietersen just behind as a 4/1 co-second favourite with Cook and Trott.

Top England bowler appears to be between Swann (2/1) and Anderson (9/4).

Alex Donohue, cricket betting expert at Ladbrokes said: "We expect England to get the job done over the course of the series with Strauss & KP amongst the runs. We've seen a few quid for the stalemate in the opening match and wouldn't be surprised if both sides bat out the draw in Cardiff."
