Winner – Much the same as a Match Result bet, placing a Winner bet requires you to predict which team will win the match. A Winner bet on cricket also offers you the chance to Cash Out early. The early Cash Out feature allows you to sacrifice a portion of your win to claim your winnings before the end of the match. Cash Out offers can be found next to each bet on your Open Bets page.
Most Fours/Sixes – Each of the Most bets requires you to predict which team will score the most fours or sixes. This bets also gives you the option to select a Draw. A draw bet will win if both teams score the same number of fours or sixes.
Overs/Unders – Cricket offers a number of Overs/Unders prop bets that require you to predict if the total number of a particular event will be less or more than a predefined amount. For instance, if you place an Over/Under Wides bets of under 14.5, your bet will win if the total number of wides bowled by both teams during the match is equal or less than 14.
Innings – These bets require much the same as Overs/Unders bets but they refer to a specific inning. For example, an Innings – Home Total Fours bet requires you to predict if the total number of fours scored by the home team during their inning is over or under a predefined number. Innings bets include Innings – Away/Home Top Batter, Innings – Away/Home Total Ducks, Innings – Away/Home Total Extras, Innings – Away/Home Sixes/Fours and more.

The field – Cricket is played on a large oval field. Unlike many other sports, there is no predefined dimension for a cricket oval with professional venues ranging from 150 to 171 meters long. At the centre of the oval is a 20-meter long by 3-meter wide pitch. At either end of the pitch are a set of three stumps topped by two bails.
Gameplay– During a cricket game two players from the batting team stand at either end of the pitch, with one standing in front of his respective stumps facing the bowler. The opposition bowler then bowls to the batter facing him in attempt to get him out. To do this the bowler either needs to hit the stumps, have one of his team mates catch the ball without it bouncing once the batter has hit it, or trap the batter in front of the stumps and his leading (also known as Leg Before Wicket or LBW).
Batters try to hit the ball to the boundaries (the edge of the pitch). If the ball passes over the boundary without touching the ground, six runs are awarded. If it bounces one or more times before passing over the boundary, four runs are awarded. If the ball does not pass over the boundary, the two batters run in between the wickets trading places until the fielding team returns the ball to either end of the pitch. If the ball is returned before a batter has reached the same end, the batter is out.
Duration – A cricket game is split into innings. A one day international has two innings, one for each team. A 5-day game has four innings, two for each team. Innings are split into either overs or wickets. In a one-day game an innings will come to an end once 50 overs have been bowled or once the fielding team scores 10 outs. In a 5-day game, play continues until the fielding team score 10 outs. As a result, 5-day games can often end without the teams playing two innings each. In these instances, the match is ruled a draw.
