Four bookies were arrested here for betting on the third one day cricket match between India and Australia Saturday, police said.

The arrest comes two days before India and Australia are to play in neighbouring Mohali.

As many as 50 mobile phones, three television sets and a laptop was seized from them.

"After getting a tip-off, we raided a house here in Sector 51 and arrested the four. One of them is a resident of Panchkula town in Haryana whereas other three are from Abohar town in Punjab," Superintendent of Police Madhur Verma told reporters here.

"They were staying here for the last one year. They have a vast network and for today's (Saturday) match between India and Australia in New Delhi, they were predicting Australia as a favourite."
