Most Runs

You're betting on: which batsmen will score the most runs for his team in the designated innings?

  • The result of this market is determined on the batsman with the highest individual score in an individual innings. Top batsmen bets for test matches apply only to the innings stated in the market name (eg: “England Most Runs 1st Inns” applies to England 1st Innings only). There will be a separate market for each team in the match (i.e. each batsman is only compared against his own team-mates).
  • If a batsman retires and does not resume his innings, his score will stand. Bets placed on any player not in the starting eleven will be void. Bets placed on a player in the starting eleven stand, whether they bat or not. If two or more players tie as top batsman, then we will apply our dead heat rules
  • In test matches top batsman bets will be void if fewer than 20 overs are bowled in the innings and the team does not declare and is not all out.
  • In 50 Over or 40 Over matches Most Runs bets will be void when an innings is reduced to less than 20 completed overs by Duckworth/Lewis method. Unless the result is already known.
  • In Twenty20 matches Most Runs bets will be void when an innings is reduced to less than 15 completed overs by Duckworth/Lewis method.
