Hills offer 1/1 that there is century scored in the match and Tendulka is 11/8 to score a fifty. India are the 3/1 favourites to win the tournament with Australia offered at 5/1 and England 9/1. The latest odds suggest that England will open with Matt Prior at 2/5 but Wright has jumped to second favourite at 4/1 ahead of Bell at 6/1.
“We were expecting punters to back Australia after they thrashed us in the One Day Series but Tendulkar and co have been very popular indeed,” said Hill’s spokesman Rupert Adams.
