Laid 155 runs or more and already logged it as a loss before the last wicket! Cricket's really nail-biting when you play the innings runs market. :D

I'm surprised the market bounces as much as 12 ticks after a wicket before another ball is even played.

Paid the price for getting up, booting up and mindlessly clicking on a match full of opportunity. Trading requires more preparation than that. :oops:

You're really getting into cricket recently, hopefully I didn't randomly bait you into it :D

I unfortunately didn't learn anything new about the sport during the footy break, I've been a bit of a lazy git instead :)

But I was still very productive and managed to successfully invade Poland, their laughable cavalry was no match for my panzer divisions. Been thinking of invading France next, they'll never see it coming through the dense Ardennes forest. I actually had this brilliant idea for a revolutionary lighting fast offensive strategy, I think I'll call it "Blitzkrieg".

Anyway, I digress, best of luck with your trading ;)

These international markets are professionally traded by syndicates who are happy to make 0.5% profit on turnover.

The pricing is pretty accurate, but scalping is possible if u have a decent feed.

In all the games, laying the initial batters would have made a decent profit (at some point).

I've got a soft spot for laying the initial batters after the 1st wicket has fallen - particularly if its early in the overs - both team have lots of resources left... That said just a newbie myself...

I did read an academic paper on it from a while ago (maybe 10 yrs old), but suspect the game has changed significantly over that period... (it was about under / over reactions - are there any? in betting markets of the fall on wickets and some other stuff)... Soz, cant find the link... (not sure if it took into account exchange pricing though)

Two of the best things about joining this forum is that Dallas got me interested in tennis trading and Emmson got me interested in cricket trading. It makes sense to have more than one string to your bow.

I'm not doubting you but when a sport is so changeable and matches frequently turn around, I would expect the true price to stay nearer the middle as opposed to the favourites being backed down the bottom of the ladder.

I haven't got the stats to test this out but in limited overs games it seems to me that if the team batting first looks down and out with 5 or more wickets down and half the overs still to got they often seem to pull back for a decent score (like England on Sunday). It's just a hunch combined with what I think are unrecorded observations but it may be interesting if someone has the stats to prove/disprove that.

Does anyone know where you can get ball by ball, or over by over stats for matches currently in-play, like Sofa Scores does with the tennis?
