Ta, they look a bit cramped, but that is exactly the sort of 'intelligent' option a cricket follower is after

The cricket prices can be pretty volatile - so they will change once the day starts play, although these options never get quite the traction/volume of the game market. The game market has matched over AUD$100 million. The market above is at $34k.

When you talk about the game market, what do you mean, all the different random spot options, such as runs scored in a particular over etc etc?

If so, I guess bettors want quick turnover, rather than waiting till the match ends

Sorry - just the win/loss/draw market - so the test result outcome. That's the one with $100m traded on it. Most of the other markets don't get anywhere near that.

Perhaps mainly Indian money(they are big gamblers on cricket), dreaming on about a win or holding on for a draw, neither of which will happen, another wicket or 2 lost and they will crumble, a good but not a strong batting side, against the best bowling attack in world cricket

I can't understand that, that makes no sense at all

I think the market is largely traded - i.e. people are backing and laying in the same market (a form of arbitrage), to gain a profit across the market. So some people take a position in the market and leave it at that, whilst others are active trying to get themselves to a positive position. Cricket markets are very volatile which makes that kind of approach usually quite possible. Wickets etc change prices quickly etc. It's a bit like tennis where a single point can move the market a fair bit especially in tight matches or when the point becomes an advantage to the non server etc. Or there is a break of serve.

Total drama for the next hour or however long it lasts.  India can't win, but Aus will stop at nothing to get the victory, including the usual gutter sledging from Paine to Ashwin(so good to see that Paine then dropped Vihari) that they voluntarily agreed to quit after the sandpaper test in South Africa

Those Aussie commentators, all former test players, are so biased.  Worth watching just to see them have to suck it up should India hold out for a draw

Draw is at 1.02, Australia at 38s
