England are strong favourites to cruise to victory in tomorrow's First Test of the summer at Lords against Bangladesh. However the weather may play a significant part in the result as rain is forecast for the London area on Sunday and Monday , the last two days of the Test . Bangladesh are certainly capable of causing an upset as they showed last summer when winning two Test's in the West Indies and they provided stiff opposition to England for some considerable time in the Series in March in Bangladesh scoring 419 in the first innings of the test at Dhaka . England have rested Paul Collingwood and Stuart Broad but welcome back captain Andrew Strauss and Alistair Cook . The betting on the match suggests an England victory is a formality with the best price available the 1/9 with Canbet . With the weather a major concern later in the weekend Sportingbet may be taking a risk with their 8/1 offer for the draw . Test starts tomorrow at 11am and all 5 days weather permitting are live on Sky Sports 1 .
