William Hill can report one way traffic for the first World Cup semi-final with almost 90% of the early money for Sri Lanka, who are 4/6 to beat New Zealand at 11/10.  The latest cricket betting odds Hills offer are 11/2 that Sri Lanka get to 100 without losing a wicket and 25/1 that both openers score a hundred.

Muralitharan is 16/1 to manage five wickets with Malinga 10/1 to take five. Stuart Broad has been well backed to replace Andrew Strauss as the next England ODI Captain and he has been cut from 16/1 to 7/1.

"Punters are all over Sri Lanka after they demolished England and many think New Zealand are the weakest of the remaining teams," said Hill's spokesman and cricket betting expert Rupert Adams.
