In what can only be billed as an extraordinary run of form for the Australian cricket team, they are already through to the quarter finals of the tournament. With the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup is in full swing, the top teams have powered their way into the final eight.What are Australia's Chances?
Sports betting giant William Hill Sports is giving the home team a terrific odds - given their unbeaten run-of-form in several ICC Cricket World Cups to date. There are two groups competing in the 2011 contest, Group A and Group B.
The likely teams are the following:
Group A Quarter Finalists include: Australia (9 pts), New Zealand (8 pts), Pakistan (8 pts) and Sri Lanka (7 pts). All these teams have completed 5 games with Australia leading the pack with 4 victories and 1 no-result. The Aussie NRR is +1.693 with 9 points.
Group B Quarter Finalists include: South Africa (8 pts), India (7 pts) , England (7 pts) and West Indies (6 pts). The South Africans are the hot favourites - alongside India - in Group B. However South Africa's loss to England, is regarded as a worrying point.
Should Australia face off against any of the Group B teams, especially England and the West Indies, their odds of winning are tremendously high. Take a look William Hill Sports odds. It's going to be a cracker of a contest!
