Twenty20: Punters Pile On England Despite IPL Experience
William Hill have been surprised by how popular England have been to beat India in the Twenty20 on Wednesday night and England are offered at 8/11 with India 11/10. Kevin Pietersen is the well backed 10/3 favourite to be top runscorer and Captain Stuart Broad is 3/1 to be top wicket taker.
"We expected punters to back India with all their experience in the IPL, but that has not been the case and 85% of bets have been for England," said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
