India backers up and down the country are celebrating after India beat Pakistan in their World Cup Semi-final. For the first time Hills estimate that they have taken over a million pounds on a One Day International. The hosts India are now 8/13 to win the World Cup, with Sri Lanka offered at 5/4. The only good news for bookies was that Tendulkar failed to score a century which would have cost Hills alone a further £30,000.
“India have been very well backed all tournament and we are desperate for Sri Lanka to come good in the final!” said Hill’s spokesman Rupert Adams.
