India 8/13 for Cricket World Cup glory after Pakistan win

INDIA ARE the 8/13 favourites with Ladbrokes to win the Cricket World Cup.

The final looks to be a tight affair, however, with opponents Sri Lanka just 5/4 chances.

India’s Sachin Tendulkar was instrumental in the semi-final victory and is 6/1 to score a century in the match. It’s 8/1 he notches his ton and his side lift the trophy.

A win for India in the final would be a £500,000 loser for the firm with one customer in the north of England sitting on a bet of £82,000 at 7/2 placed at the start of the tournament.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “At one point we thought Pakistan were about to do us a huge favour but it wasn’t to be. We’re already on the ropes and Tendulkar can finish us off by blasting his side to victory in the final.”
