England’s first ODI of their tour of Sri Lanka lasted just 15 overs before rain ensured a complete washout.

Those 15 overs gave us a few clues about what to expect over the next few weeks. There’s more rain forecast, but hopefully we’ll find out more in Saturday’s second ODI in Dambulla…

Second ODI odds

England were cruising along quite nicely on Wednesday before the rain hit. They reached 92-2 with Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root and Eoin Morgan contributing to 15 fours and a pair of sixes.

Sri Lanka showed their bowling capabilities those to remove Roy and Bairstow. It should be an intriguing series.

England’s batting prowess should (if the weather holds) prove too much for the hosts. The tourists are 2/5 favourites to win this second ODI, with Sri Lanka 2/1.

The key men

Morgan will again be looking for his side to start brightly. Openers Roy and Bairstow did just that on Wednesday.

Surrey’s Roy is 3/1 to hit the most runs for England, with Bairstow also at 3s behind Root at 11/4.

Niroshan Dickweall and Upul Tharanga share 3/1 favouritism to top score for Sri Lanka.

England never got a chance to show what they could do with the ball in the first ODI. Adil Rashid leads the wicket-taker betting at 3/1, ahead of Chris Woakes at 7/2.

Akila Dananjaya removed Roy in Wednesday’s opener, and the 25-year-old is 3/1 favourite to get the most wickets for the hosts.

The legendary Lasith ‘Slinger’ Malinga proved expensive in the opening ODI, yielding 37 runs from five overs, but is always capable of magic and is second in the betting at 10/3.
