England 7-4 to win First Test after strong day two

England have been cut into 7-4 (from 9-4) to win the First Test against Australia following day two in Cardiff. The draw is now priced up at 7-4, while an Australia win is slightly bigger at 15-8.

Coral is also betting on who will finish the opening innings with a lead where England are favourites at 8-11, with Australia a shade of odds against at 11-10.

“Once again, England have finished the day strongly with the betting suggesting they are just shading an advantage at the moment. In our first innings lead market, England are favourites, something which did not look likely just after lunch on day two,” said Coral’s John Hill.
