Yep, you’re absolutely right. I told them that the wording they use is for a 2 innings match. In a one-day game, there’s only one innings, with one team batting first, and the other batting second, which comprises as innings.
I told ‘Emma’ (I’m sure she wasn’t a real Emma 🙂 ) this and she was really sarcastic and unhelpful. I’ve fired off a mail to them as a complaint. None of the other bookies offer this bet, simply offering for the whole match. It’s basically a punt with Paddy Power as we don’t even know who’ll bat first.
I traded out for a £34 loss, which is preferable to a £300 losing bet first thing in the morning…
Thanks for flagging that up, Dave!
