India are by far the best backed team to win the World Cup, with bets of up to £8,000 placed today at 8/13. Anyone would think that India were a one man team as Sachin Tendulkar has been hammered to be top bat at 5/2, man of the match at 5/1 and to score a hundred also at 5/1. Other popular specials include 8/1 that Sachin has a decision overturned on review and 14/1 that Muralitharan gets a wicket with the final ball of his ODI career.

"India have attracted over 70% of the early money, with an astonishing 95% of our punters backing Tendulkar to be man of the match. If the Little Master fails and Sri Lanka come good we will have had a fantastic tournament," said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams on the latest cricket betting odds..
