Eng 3.0
India 4.2
Aus 5.5
N.Zealnd 13
S.Africa 14
Pakistan 20
Windies 25
The Rest 130+

Eng have looked v impressive for the last yr. The weak link is the bowling, but maybe Archer can fill that gap.

I think Eng are still over-priced but can see its debateable, (and am talking my book, which has Eng v big winners, India level, and the rest all big losers).

Warm-ups tomorrow .. dunno how relevant they are etc, but, its something to bet on.

Really looking forward to this & thanks again Megarain for getting me interested in cricket )

As a complete novice at cricket trading, dutching England & India on the winners market could give a potential return of 75% to 80% based on current prices.... To good to be true?

Hope to trade this tournament also. Am still on a very remedial stage with cricket trading.

Is there much historical data available on these markets, I presume can be bought from BF ?

I am sure u ask in good faith .. but that is a very sore point.

The cricket data is incomplete. In 2018, there were about 67 test matches .. only 25 or so are on the historical archive.

The archive charges 75 - 150 per month, depending on the depth of data u want. To pay, and not get all of what u are paying for, doesn't
seem quite right.

The archive has not been adding to the database since Nov 2018. I am informed a new service will be available fairly shortly .. so, maybe they
have fixed all the old problems.

The warm-ups are a bit of a lottery, as the pitches can be v close to one boundary (saving the good pitches, for the real thing).

Indeed, must be very frustrating to pay for a service and not get the data at the level expected.

I'll be having a good look at the markets this Summer. I'll be really interested to see how they trade.

These markets possibly could break records on BetFair under the right conditions

Not sure what, if anything, can be read into the warm up games, I suspect not very much, other than how a defeat might effect confidence in the run up to the world cup

England now have a couple of injury concern to worry about at the wrong time

A heavy defeat for India also

Rain delays in Cardiff .. supposed to start at 10.30 .. a non-tv game, so, no extra hour should be allocated.

No play by 1pm, and cut-off should be 3pm.

At 1.52.pm, they announce cut-off for a start of play moved to 4.15 (super sneaky).

10 mins later, they call the game off.

Its not hard to see why some regard the ICC as (allegedly) corrupt as XXXX

Be interesting how the weather will effect the World Cup games, or will they abandon in the same way
