£82k bet on India to win Cricket World Cup

| 17.02.2011

A Colossal £82k bet has been struck by a Ladbrokes customer on an India win in the upcoming Cricket World Cup.

The bet is believed to be one of the biggest ever in the one day game and should the co-hosts win the tournament it will cost the bookies a staggering £246k.

Despite this single bet in conjunction with strong support generally India remain the 3/1 favourites with the firm upholding their top price guarantee across the industry on all outright winners.*

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said:”As the tournament gets underway one punter has nailed his colours firmly to India’s mast. It’s one of the biggest bets we’ve ever laid in the one day format and we’ve even more reason now to fear an India win.”
