Cricket is well .... cricket. Like when Oz played India after the initial exchanges you would've bet your house on Australia ... and look what happened
I you think about MOST Test matches, (around 4/5), each team is 'winning' at some point. You just have to hold your nerve and bet on the other team then. And then 'cover' your bet when the tables turn.
So few end in draws nowadays that I just discount that, if it happens, OK, I lose.
So I had £10 on Oz yesterday when B'desh were 265 or so for 6. Got 2-1 as I said. You can now get around 5-1 on a B'desh win, have put a fiver on that.
So, if Oz win I am £15 up, if B'desh win I am also £15 up. Just don't want a draw....unlikely! You WILL note, relatively small amounts!
Great batting by you guys today, by the way. Warner seems in great nick
