I backed India 2-1.  What is wrong with these bookmakers.  Make a bloody decision!! The fifth match was obviously void, what is difficult about that?

I’m on India series win outright and draw no bet on the sportsbook. Not been settled. Gangluly talking about a fifth test match next Summer on cricinfo. Funds could be tied up for another 12 months!

This last farago was always a possibility but hard to think about when into working out who is going to win.

I have a feeling 2-1 is going to be the official result. Don’t forget that might be a little harsh on people backing Indus 3-1 as well as draw or 2-2.

England pulled out of SA and that may be the precedent when ICC meet to discuss.

I am just glad I didn’t bet on the outcome. You can’t please everybody or offer a fair solution. I think 2-1 is closest to being right but the arguments on several sides have merit.

dont blame betfair exchange here, ( though they  could come out and say, were voiding or not, or we are waiting for official result even if its in 3 months etc etc ), as they have backers and layers to please ,   but the bookmakers stance is pathetic, coral and lads  are paying out 2-2 and 2-1 , yet nothing from the rest, come on bookmakers pay out on the double result,  i bet it isnt that much whove done 2-1 anyway

Apart from Lads and Coral being very honourable I haven't even heard any comments from the other bookies regarding the delays in their decision and what may be happening with the ICC.

We passed your query on to James Milton, who reported in the Racing Post on September 11th, the day after the news broke about the final England v India test match.

James responded as below:

I've now spoken to bet365, Betfred and William Hill today about their settlement of series winner/series correct score bets.

They are all waiting to see whether the fifth Test is rescheduled for next year, or whether the ICC rules that the match was null and void or was forfeited by India.

If the Test is forfeited then Betfred and Hills say they'll pay out on the series draw and the 2-2 correct score; if the ICC void it then it'll be settled as an India series win by a 2-1 scoreline.

If the ECB and BCCI can fix a date for the match to be played next year then the markets will be settled once that match has taken place, which is obviously annoying for punters whose money is tied up until next summer.

Coral and Ladbrokes paid out on India, the draw & the 2-1 and 2-2 correct-score markets as a goodwill gesture as soon as the fifth Test was postponed but most other bookmakers (including Betfair Exchange, I suspect) are waiting on an official verdict from the ICC.

We hope you find this helpful.

Kind regards,
Will Pepper

Anyone’s guess how this one gets resolved. My understanding is that the ECB and BCCI will negotiate and if the ECB aren’t happy with the proposal they’ll go to the ICC. BCCI surely don’t want the 5th test next year given current score and having to bring out test players for a one off test against an England side with their best players back. Anything less than a 5th test will surely force the ECB to go to the ICC. Extra T20s or a one off test not going to cut the mustard imo. If the ICC rule then who knows which way they’ll come down. India had a full quota of players to choose from after all.

All correct score series bets will be subject to the following rule if the correct number of Tests are not played. For example: England v South Africa – 5 match series. South Africa are leading 4-0 and the last match is abandoned. Only customers who have backed South Africa to win the series 5-0 or 4-1 are potential winners - all other bets are losers.
Series bets will be settled in accordance with the official result.

from betfred, so if thats the case ( if im reading this right), they will not be paying out anyway on 2-1, only on 3-1 0r 2-2 , is abandoned the same as cancelled ?.  surely that rules is incorrect they would have to include 2-1
