Well, we all are excited about the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 but no one is more excited than the bookies for who the game is about winning a few bucks. As per a recent story published by NDTV, the bookies have given 4th place to Indian Team in their bets. Australia, South Africa and New Zealand are leading the charts due to their flawless performance in the recent times.

The factors that have pushed Team India to the fourth place are recent defeats faced by Team India in the Tri-Series, absence of hitters like Yuvraj Singh, Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir. On the other hand, the Indian police have also become vigilant and have been keeping a close watch on known bookies as betting is illegal in India.

It would be interesting to see whether Team India would lose the number 4 position also or would come at the top. It all depends on their performance in the first few matches in the World Cup.

We as fans can only hope that Team India would lift the world cup as it the happiness garnered from such a situation would be worth a lot of money. After all we are totally mad about cricket and our mood depends on whether India won the match or not.
