ENGLAND ARE the red hot favourites to wrap up a series win against Sri Lanka according to Ladbrokes.

The first Test gets under way on Monday and England (15/8) will be looking to get back to winning ways after the dismal series against Pakistan, and at 9/4 Sri Lanka could be taken advantage of.

England are chalked up at 6/5 for the series win and it's 5/1 they wrap it up in a whitewash by winning 2-0.

With Alastair Cook and Kevin Pietersen hitting centuries for fun in the UAE tour the firm are pledging to refund losing bets if Pietersen reaches a ton in during the 1st innings. He also earns a 4/1 quote of being England's top runscorer with Cook the favourite at 5/2.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: "Sri Lanka are a weaker side than Pakistan and we're anticipating England will bounce back comfortably in this Test. They're number one for a reason after all."
