1. General Rule
If a match or innings is curtailed through external factors and there is no further play, any bets placed on any-in play market once play has been curtailed will be void [except bets placed on match betting]. Any pre-match bets placed will be settled in accordance with our relevant rules for the respective market. If a match venue is changed then bets will stand provided the home team is still designated as such. If the home and away team for a match are reversed then bets placed on the original listing will be void.

2. General Settlement
All tournament and match markets will be settled on the official tournament results/match scorecards listed on ICC website. If there is no result available, then the website www.cricinfo.com will be used for settlement purposes.
A batsman that retires from an innings will not be considered as a wicket for settlement purposes.
If the concussion rule is activated in a Cricket Australia sanctioned match while a player is batting, all markets relating to that player will be settled based on that player being 'retired hurt'. If the concussion rule is activated prior to that player batting or bowling, they will be void from relevant markets.

The term “innings reaching it’s natural conclusion” refers to an innings which has not be closed by external factors such as rain or bad light. A team being bowled out or declaring is considered to be reaching it’s natural conclusion.

If a match is cancelled before any play has taken place, then all bets will be void, unless the match is replayed within 48 hours of its advertised start time, in this case the bets will stand.

Match bets will be settled according to the winner determined by official competition rules (including the case where matches are shortened due to adverse weather conditions or decided a bowl off), unless the winner is determined by the toss of a coin or the drawing of lots, in which case all match bets will be void.

If the match is tied and the official competition rules do not determine a winner, dead heat rules will apply to bets on the outright result unless the outcome is settled by a bowl off or super over, in which case the result of the bowl off or super over will stand for match betting.

All in play or not. (i.e. if a player does not take part in the series, bets placed on that player will stand). If players score the same number of runs then dead heat rules will apply.

62. Total Match Boundaries
If either team's innings in a limited overs match is reduced by more than 20% of the original allocation of overs then all bets on this market shall be void regardless of how many sixes/fours are hit prior to or after any announced reduction in overs. Bets will stand if either innings is shortened due to it reaching its natural conclusion. For the avoidance of doubt players running four do not count for this market.

63. Direction of First Boundary
Market settled on the direction of the first boundary that comes off the bat (given as runs to the batsman.)

64. Wickets Lost After "x" Overs.

This market is settled on how many wickets have been lost at the overs stated in the index.  If the game reaches a natural conclusion without reaching the number of overs named in the index then all bets will be settled on the number of wickets lost at the end of play. If the innings is shortened for any reason other than reaching its natural conclusion then all bets will be void unless unequivocally decided prior to the shortening of the innings.

65. Top Match Batsman

Based on the type of match the following minimum overs must be bowled in both innings for bets to stand:

  1. 50 over match - 25 overs
  2. 20 over match - 10 overs

In all cases bets will stand if the innings reaches its natural conclusion in less than the above requirement. Bets placed on any player not named in the starting eleven are void.

Players named in the starting eleven that do not bat are deemed to have taken part and bets on any such players are losers.

If players score the same number of runs then dead heat rules will apply.

For Limited overs matches – Should the winner already be unequivocally decided even if the innings were to be played out to its natural conclusion, the market will be settled as normal despite any reduction in overs.

For Twenty20 Big Bash Matches – Any Player named as an ‘X-Factor Player’ that is subbed into a match at the Halfway point of the first innings, will be deemed to have taken part in the match; and will be settled as an active participant in the final eleven.

For Twenty20 Big Bash Matches – If a Player is replaced at the Halfway point of the first innings, they will be deemed to have not been part of the final eleven – and bets will be void.

66. To score 10/20/30/40 Runs

Markets will be settled if the players are included in the starting eleven regardless of whether the player reaches the crease.

If the player is not included in the starting eleven, all bets on these selections will be void.

For Twenty20 Big Bash Matches – Any Player named as an ‘X-Factor Player’ that is subbed into a match at the Halfway point of the first innings, will be deemed to have taken part in the match; and will be settled as an active participant in the final eleven.

67. X Team to Score Runs

This market is separate to Team Total Runs (see rule 7) and will be settled on the total runs scored by the respective team regardless of any reductions in overs.

In matches where we offer betting on the Team Total Runs for both teams then all bets placed on the second innings runs will stand regardless of the score achieved by the side batting first.
