Last Champions Trophy tough one to pick

5:59 pm on 5 June 2013

Cricket's final Champions Trophy tournament promises to be a closely-fought contest with little between the sport's leading eight nations.

Going into the opening game of the 50-overs tournament tomorrow night between India and South Africa in Cardiff, the Proteas are favourites at 4 to 1, while the Black Caps are the outsiders, but at just 12 to 1.

New Zealand's group includes England, Australia and Sri Lanka, and the Black Caps' opening game is against Sri Lanka on Sunday night in Cardiff.
