Boasting plenty of big-hitters, a diverse bowling attack and a wily captain in Daniel Vettori, we’re having an outside punt on New Zealand to win at 8/1 with William Hill.

Top bowler

Australia has ominously unearthed another world-beating seamer in Mitchell Johnson. The English conditions will suit the left-hander so we’re backing him at 20/1 with Coral to be the tournament’s top bowler.

To hit most sixes

After hitting six sixes in an over facing England's Stuart Broad last time around, India’s Yuvraj Singh is the favourite to hit most sixes in the tournament. He’s as short as 4/1 with some bookies so Paddypower’s 9/1 looks generous.
