You Bet McGrath Is The Best Bowler In The World

Bookmakers William Hill make Glenn McGrath their 4/9 favourite to be the World Cup’s top wicket taker - his tally currently stands at twenty five, two ahead of his nearest challengers, Muralitharan at 3/1 and Sean Tait 5/1. Australia are the 4/11 favourites with Sri Lanka offered at 2/1 and betting turnover is predicted to top the £5 million barrier for the match in what has been the biggest cricket betting event of all time with over £200 million wagered to date. “Despite England’s disappointing performance we have been very happy with the turnover but will need to get Australia beat in the Final for the World Cup to be a profitable book,” said Hill’s spokesman Rupert Adams.
