|Odds on India to win the Cricket World Cup had been lengthened following their shock defeat to Bangladesh in the Opening Match of Group B, but their win over Bermuda on Monday prompted MaharajahClub.com bookmakers to shorten their odds to 8/1. |
India, who secured a record-breaking 257 run victory in Monday’s game, must win tonight’s match against rivals Sri Lanka to stay in the tournament. Australia remain the clear favourites at 2/1 to take the coveted cricket prize. Additionally, with 155 runs so far, Indian Batsman Sourav Ganguly (12/1) is a strong contender for Best Batsman but Australia’s Ricky Ponting (136 runs) is the favourite for this prop at 6/1.
“Most of our punters are southeast Asians living in Britain, so their loyalties are split between India and England,” said Sachin Pawa CEO of MaharajahClub.com. “The loss against Bangladesh had some people sceptical about India and we started to see more money wagered on England, but since the win against Bermuda we’re seeing much more money back on India this week.”
