Our Sri Lanka v England bonus bets

After playing himself into form in the warm up game on this tour, Joe Root is fancied to lead from the front here, so we are backing him to be the top England 1st innings scorer, available at 13/5 with bet365.

Elsewhere, as this is the first match in the series, we can also back a series score. England are the better team here, and while the conditions favour the hosts, they don’t as much as we have seen in the past. England can win both games, and a 2-0 series win is available at 9/4 with bet365.

All odds correct at the time of publication.
