SOUTH AFRICA’s surprise defeat to England in the World Cup helped Ladbrokes enjoy their most lucrative day of the Cricket World Cup so far.

With India stuttering to victory over a spirited Irish side, the in-play markets went the way of the bookies.

England’s six-run defeat of South Africa was desperate news for the majority of punters who had deserted Andrew Strauss’s men before play and during the match.

David Williams of Ladbrokes said: “England are fast becoming a notorious banana-skin team for punters. Abysmal against Ireland then inspired to beat the South Africans, we’re having a lot of fun with them.”

Ireland are out to 7/1 to qualify for the latter stages of the tournament after going down to the 11/4 tournament favourites India. England are into 7/1 to lift the trophy next month.
