Cricket: official rules of the game in brief

Cricket Cup

Bets will be settled according to the official tournament results and scorecards published on the official ICC website If the official result is not published, then the data from the website will be used for settlement.

For the purposes of settling bets, a batsman who retires from an innings is not considered a wicket. The term “an innings has reached its normal conclusion” means an innings that has not been interrupted due to external factors, such as rain or poor lighting. When a team has been dismissed or declared out, the innings is deemed to have reached its normal conclusion. If the venue of the match is changed, bets already placed will remain valid, provided that the home team is officially recognized as the home team. If the home team becomes the away team and the away team becomes the home team, the bets will be canceled.

Interruption, Cancellation and Rescheduling

If a match is canceled before the start of the game, all bets will be voided unless the match is restarted within 48 hours of the scheduled start time, in which case all bets will be honored.

One-Day Matches (with a limited number of overs)

Bets will be settled according to the winner according to the official rules of the competition (including situations where matches are shortened due to external factors and the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern (DLS) or similar method is used to determine the official result. If, according to the rules of the competition, insufficient games are played to determine the official result, bets will be voided regardless of whether the rules determine a “winner” for the purpose of advancing in the standings or whether a super over or bowl-out was used to determine the winner.

If the match ends in a draw and a super overtime or a bowl-out is used to determine the winner, bets on the winner of the match will be settled according to the results of the super overtime or bowl-out. In all other cases, the tie rule applies. For the avoidance of doubt, if the score is tied after both innings (including situations where DLS or similar was used for games with a reduced number of overs), any method previously used in the match/competition/tournament to determine the winner in the event of a tie will not be taken into account when settling bets.

If a super over or bowl-out ends in a tie without further attempts to determine the winner, the tie rule will be applied. If additional super-overs or bowl-outs were used, bets will be settled based on the result of the final super-over or bowl-out.

Test Matches and Local Championships

If the match is interrupted due to bad weather conditions before the first ball is served, bets will be voided.

If the match is interrupted for any reason other than weather, bets on the outcome of the match will be voided.

If a match for which we did not offer odds on a draw ends in a draw, bets on that match will be voided.

If either side abandons its first inning, bets on the first inning will be voided.
