India win as tournament turnover tops 10 million!
Bookies William Hill are hailing the Cricket World Cup as the biggest turnover tournament yet, with over £10 million pounds wagered over the competition with Hills alone.
Despite an India victory, Hills managed to make a small five figure sum after Sri Lanka were heavily backed after a fantastic first Innings total.
India are 4/1 to defend their title in 2015 with Tendulkar offered at 12/1 to start!
"Sri Lanka's first Innings total saved us from a monster payout and despite the hosts victory we have managed to come out of the match with a small profit," said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
