Sri Lanka are the only team capable of saving Ladbrokes from a payout in excess of £500,000.

The Cricket World Cup final takes place on Saturday and due to some colossal wagers placed at the start of the tournament the bookies stand to lose over half a million should well backed 4/7 match favourites India prevail. Sri Lanka drift out to 11/8 for the match as a result.

Both Singhs are 9/4 to take a wicket on the way to an India victory and it's 66/1 Malinga takes five wickets and hits a six in the match.

India are also favoured to hit the most sixes in the match (4/6). It's 11/10 Sri Lanka win that match bet with 4/6 also the price about India posting the highest fifteen over score.

Alex Donohue, cricket betting expert at Ladbrokes said: "We've never had more reason to cheer on Sri Lanka but the odds suggest we're up against it and should get ready to pay out."
