Matt Prior 50/1 to be World Cup top scorer

England are 80/1 to win the Cricket World Cup with Matt Prior the top tournament run scorer according to Ladbrokes.

It’s 50/1 that Prior is the top scoring batsmen of the tournament and 5/1 he is the highest scoring England player.

England take on the Netherlands in their opening group game and it’s 10/1 that Prior registers a century in that match.

5/2 is the price that they go on and win the group.

Stuart Broad is 9/4 to be England’s top wicket taker with Tim Bresnan a 5/1 chance.

Luke Wright is the 50/1 outsider.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “After an exciting campaign down under England must be confident of putting in a good performance at the World Cup. Matt Prior’s batting could be key to that and he will look to the Netherlands game as an opportunity to get some runs on the board.”
