William Hill are looking forward to the return of the Indian Premier League, which is now the biggest cricket event of the year.

Despite the absence of Kevin Pietersen and Shane Warne, the bookies are predicting a huge betting event. As it stands Chennai Super Kings are the 4/1 favourites, followed by Kolkata, Mumbai & Bangalore at 5/1. 

The tournament is known for its thrills and spills, it is 14/1 that any player scores a maximum 36 runs in an over and 5/6 that an individual player scores 123 or more this year.

"I would think that we will take more on the IPL than the Ashes, for many it is the cricketing event of the year and is proving very popular indeed," said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
