Can Pakistan save bookies from £500k payout?

| 29.03.2011

Pakistan can save Ladbrokes from a £500k payout by beating India tomorrow.

They appear to have a tough task at the prices though as it’s 4/7 India win the match with Pakistan 11/8 chances.

A win for 6/4 tournament favourites India will trigger the monster payout with the liability building steadily on the side throughout the tournament. India never traded any bigger than their opening show of 7/2 with several five-figure bets struck at the price.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “We’re all Pakistan fans for the day tomorrow and they can do us a seriously good turn by knocking India out of the World Cup. We laid some monster bets at the start of the tournament and punters have never left their side since.”
