“It’s right up there as one my best wins,” said Joe Root after the England victory in the first test against Sri Lanka, the first overseas Test win for England in a couple of years, “We were in control for the majority of the game which shows how skillful and consistent we have been.” Which frankly is putting a gloss on things a little, the 2018 Sri Lanka England 2nd Test odds really reflecting the capability of the old hands but the determination of the new faces.
“To be able to contribute to the team is just amazing,” said Ben Foakes who arrived in the team to keep wicket and hit a full century in the first innings in Galle, and you don’t need to bet on sports in Sri Lanka every week to wager that performance will cement his place in the English test side for some time to come. “It has been one of the best weeks of my career so far.” He agreed, possibly having seen the 2018 Sri Lanka England 2nd Test odds giving the visitors Evens.

Sri Lanka England 2nd Test
- Sri Lanka – 2/1
- Draw – 15/4
- England – Evens
“Credit goes to England,” said Sri Lankan captain Dinesh Chandimal, “they played some outstanding cricket. We had a really good start in the first session, but we couldn’t capitalize on it.” And the bookies like BetRally seem to believe that might well be repeated in Kandy which is why they’re only giving the home side a rather parsimonious 2/1 in the 2018 Sri Lanka England 2nd Test odds and a draw the far more attractive price of 15/4, especially in light of the weather.
Rain didn’t impinge on the 1st test but the 2018 Sri Lanka England 2nd Test odds are obviously just a little touched by the rain we’re likely to see over the next few days, making a draw more likely, but alas not as likely as England winning and indeed if you’re planning on taking advantage of Sri Lankan gambling laws to wager on the game it might just be sheer folly to back the home side, their obvious deficiencies only added to by Rangana Herath having retired.

Not that he provided much defense against Keaton Jennings who ended the 2nd innings on 146 not out, eclipsing even Foakes’ debut century, and demonstrating that England are a side with more teeth these days. Perhaps that’s why the tourist side for the game in Kandy is unchanged and those 2018 Sri Lanka England 2nd Test odds are so definite. Dilruwan Perera may have more luck, of course, but the bookies like BetRally don’t seem to think he can do it all by himself.
That all said do remember England have only won once in a test match away from home in the last two years and the chances are they’ll not manage to do it twice on the bounce, however much energy and positive thinking they put into it, long time England fans will recognize that whilst the 2018 Sri Lanka England 2nd Test odds suggest it’ll go their way there’s still room for Sri Lankan gambling news headlines on the weekend to crow with headlines concerning England’s collapse.
