ICC Indo-Pak match- Gambler's day out

A lot will be at stake at tomorrow's ICC Champion's Trophy match between India and Pakistan.

The All India Gaming Federation (AIGF) believes that almost Rs 2,000 crore will be gambled on the final.

While India was a clear preference but the margin was slim.

A person would win Rs. 147 for Rs. 100 if India won, and Rs. 300 on Pakistan's victory.
