Cricket is a unique sport in that it has three completely different versions played at the international level. There are many rules that change between Test Cricket, ODI cricket, or T20 cricket. Even T10 is now starting to become very popular among the smaller leagues. Cricket also has more than just win or lose as a match result. The match can end in ‘Draw’ or a ‘Tie’. So, what if match tied in Bet365? What happens then? Let’s find out.
What if match tied in Bet365?
As a rule of thumb, the smaller the match, the more chance of it ending in a tie. For example, we are likely to see tie as a result more often in T20 cricket than in Test cricket. If a match ends in a tie, there are two things that can happen:
- You bet on a tie ( in which case you are going to be paid handsomely)
- No price was quoted for a tie
The first scenario is self-explanatory. In the second, the rule of the competition will apply. Therefore, in case the result is officially a tie, dead-heat rules will apply. Users will receive half of the return on their win/lose bet since cricket just has two participants.
If, however, there is a Super-Over to determine the winner, then the bet will settle as per the outcome of the Super-Over. For example, England was the winner of the 2019 Cricket World Cup final even though the match went into a Super Over. Bet365 will treat England as the winner of the match and pay its bets out accordingly.
Lastly, any boundaries or sixes hit in the Super-Over do not count towards the match total. Since these are also popular betting markets, confusion can occur in case of a tie and a Super-Over contest. Best of luck!
