@stuart-henry yeah on way to Bangkok from Singapore now 3 nights central then 2 nights bush ha. Phuket KL on way home … well yeah we likely be doing stuff ev day but if there’s an evening night window where chilling at a bar etc I’ll give ya a msg through the chat
@nathan-bennett where are you off to? In Bangkok, Thailand from Tuesday and then to Udon Thani for a few weeks after a few days seeing family. If you are anywhere close by, come say hello!
Taking my computer but the internet isnt the best at the house, so it may be better to not trade at all .
@nathan-bennett yeah i get that. I often think what I would deem value and start there... like with NZ later, 1.09 is no good, but give me 1.2 - 1.3 and I'd be happy with that.
However really depends on the toss this one. If NZ bat first I can see them drifting a little but if they bowl first I don't expect much movement upwards.
@nathan-bennett amazing how 2 people can trade the exact same numbers, i just backed Bangladesh at 1.4 first then exited at 1.19 lol.
Will be waiting on the toss for NZ. If they bat first again they may lose early wickets, but if they bowl first there's every chance they take early wickets and the price never drifts...
Also got Ireland v SA later too.
BANG ZIM ODI
BANG 1.19 first lay another late in INNS if odds similar
Hoping to get some insurance 1.35-1.40
Locked some green and rolling now big result
Couldn't help 1.12 add another lay while BANG are none down .., likely go on to boss the INNS hope for swings would take stake back 1.2's this trade
Taken 1.24 that invest
Morning everyone. Not been around for a while. Currently watching the Aus v Pak women. Had a big lay of Aus at 1.01 prematch, liability now removed. Hoping for a couple more wickets now!
Yeah this is one of those double or nothing matches where you can lay at 1.01 pre match and exit at 1.02 should it get there (often does).
I think they touched 1.04 but its key not to be too greedy as these kinds of matches don't often drift too far in the market. Aus well on top now, back in to 1.01 lay only.
Very quick piece of analysis before tomorrow's Hundred begins. Its a totally unique format and I'd advise caution trading (as there are a large number of variables I have not yet investigated such as lineup changes/availability and the fact each team plays the other just once bar local rivals and those who were at home last season will be away this etc).
However, perhaps this will be useful, even if purely to get the research started:
Ground scoring averages!
Old Trafford 111
Trent Bridge 138
Sophia Gardens 153
The Oval 137
Ageas Bowl 142
Old Trafford 116
Trent Bridge 127
Sophia Gardens 108
The Oval 116
Ageas Bowl 129
I've factored in those that were rain impacted... there weren't very many.
This is just during the league phase not knockouts.
Just gives you an idea which grounds were higher scoring and the types of scores typically achieved in 100 balls.
Also for reference the highest scoring matches were Headingly for men, 341 runs total and Lords for women 284 runs total. Lowest non rain impacted matches were Old Trafford for men, 167 total runs and Lords again for women with 190 total runs.
@stuart-wallace I know this isn't any consolation, but we've all been there. It eff-ing sucks! But it's important to action those lessons and you'll find you come back stronger and more in control. Last year I lost 50% of my bank by being complacent but I've got it back and I'm confident you will too.
@stuart-wallace as big as my lay England one?
Yep, wiped out 50 pts of my (small) bank- just as i was starting to get to a decent balance.
3 things learnt from it...
- Dont get complacent with batting records - such as ENG and PAK wins recently.
- Keep possible losses to a minimum (i know you preach this over and over, but complacency had crept in, thinking 'i know my cricket' !)
- Only trade matches where you can keep an eye on the progress - for example, for work reasons i couldnt monitor both ENG and PAK games, and before i knew it, odds had run away from me.
