  • Where no price is quoted for the tie and the official competition rules do not determine a winner then Dead-Heat rules will apply, in competitions where a bowl off or super over determines a winner then bets will be settled on the official result.
  • In the event of a tied match during the knockout stages of a competition, the winner will be settled as the team who progress.
